Testimonial

testimonial for surgery abroadI remember the morning when suddenly I heard strange popping sound in my knee while jogging and felt the pain. In the hospital I was told I had torn my anterior cruciate ligament.  I started looking for ACL reconstruction abroad and came across Surgery Price. With Surgery Price I saved my time, a great deal of money and restored my health. Matt, Ireland

testimonial for surgery abroadI was living with torn ACL for over a year.It started causing pain so i started my research for the best clinic. I looked through different options in several countries, then turned to SurgeryPrice. They recommended a clinic with years of experience with foreign patients. I got fully arranged surgery less than in a month. My surgery was fast and painless, and now I feel better every day. Thanks SurgeryPrice for the recommendation.. Alex, Norway

About anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL) is performed when the ligament is severely impaired and non-surgical treatment does not help. For instance, when ACL is torn completely and it cannot heal, even if it is stitched back.

During an ACL reconstruction, a surgeon removes the impaired tissue and replaces it with a new ligament which can be taken either from the body of the patient (autograft) or a donor (allograft). Autograft normally comes from patellar tendon or the hamstring.

ACL is a minimally invasive an arthroscopic surgery during which a surgeon makes a few minor incisions and inserts surgical instruments and an arthroscope.
