Before surgery

Your operation will be performed by a specialist knee surgeon, usually as a day case procedure at Chapel Allerton Hospital.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury

In this video our surgeon Mr Sanjeev Anand explains what the anterior cruciate ligament is, what happens if it is injured and how it can be treated or repaired.

Our physiotherapist Niall explains what happens when you have an injury to your ACL and your prehabilitation journey. 

To help prepare you knee for your operation you need to start doing some exercises that will help strengthen the muscles around your knee to help you recover as quickly as possible. 

See the videos in our exercise section, perhaps try and do these with friends and family before you come into hospital?
