Whereas we are fully focused on providing exceptional care and undivided attention for our patients.
Without any additional fees patients are tended in the clinic as long as they need. We only discharge our patients from the clinic when they are in a good health state and ready to leave.

Our clinic works with medical professionals of highest education and experience level and uses the same materials as the clinics in Western Europe. More often than not, the quality of our clinic‘s facilities exceed the ones in Western European clinics.
The price difference is only due to considerably lower average salaries and taxes - which is the main reason for medical travel everywhere around the world.

What is anterior cruciate ligament?

Ligaments are bands that keep the bones together at a joint.  The anterior cruciate ligament  (ACL) links diagonally the bottom of the  thigh-bone (femur) with the upper part of the shinbone (tibia). It gives strength to the joint, keeps the knee stable and by limiting its movements does not allow the shinbone move in front of thigh-bone.

When anterior cruciate ligament repair is necessary?

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstructionUsually anterior cruciate ligament is damaged when the knee joint is twisted, bent backward or side to side. The injury may happen when you change the direction abruptly or slow down while running, when you land  from a jump unsuccessfully or fall of the ladder.  Most often it happens in sports, such as skiing, football, tennis or squash.

When ACL is impaired knee looses its stability and the range of movement becomes limited thus it is difficult and painful to make certain movements. Since ACL has less control over the movement of knee the bones tend to rub against each other and even impair cartilage which is the connective tissue that covers the bones and damage meniscus which cushions bones at joints.

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery

An ACL reconstruction surgery is a procedure during which the impaired anterior cruciate ligament is replaced with a new ligament which comes either from your own body or a donor. Normally tissue is taken either from the knee cap tendon or the muscle behind the knee. Since ACL can not be reconstructed by simply stitching it together,  surgeons do it by grafting a new tissue which allows new ligament to build up over the attached tissue.

It is an arthroscopic surgery, meaning that through small incisions a tiny camera is placed which is used to see the ligaments and other necessary tissues.

Rehabilitation after ACL reconstruction

Usually it takes about 2 months to achieve short-term recovery and 6 months to recover fully. However, athletes may need one year to get back to professional sports. Read more about rehabilitation after ACL surgery
