Your posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are two large ligaments that control front to back movement in your knee. A sports injury or a fall directly on the front of your knee can tear your PCL.
Your surgeon will make two or three small incisions and insert a tiny camera to examine the inside of your knee. They will wash out any loose material caused by wear of the joint surfaces. They will trim the ends of the ligament in preparation for a graft. Most reconstructions use hamstring tendons to join the torn ends of the ligament. Special surgical screws fix the ends to bone.
Your surgical wounds will be closed using stitches or staples. Your knee will be bandaged. If more than one ligament has been reconstructed you may need to wear a brace.
PCL Reconstruction is usually performed as a day case meaning you can go home the day of your procedure.
