Have Your ACL Repaired by Experienced Houston, TX Orthopedic Surgeon K. Mathew Warnock, MD
An ACL tear can seriously interfere with your daily routine. It is a vital part of the knee and helps to prevent the leg giving way. Does your knee give way or have any swelling or pain? These are all symptoms of an ACL tear. If you think you may need ACL surgery, call Dr. K. Mathew Warnock, MD to evaluate your knee.
Dr. Warnock will perform a clinical exam using the pivot-shift test, the drawer test, and the Lachman test to evaluate your knee. After testing the stability of your knee, Dr. Warnock will discuss your best options for treatment. An MRI may be necessary to identify other injuries. In most cases involving an ACL tear, surgery is necessary. During ACL surgery, Dr. Warnock will reconstruct the torn ligament by inserting an autograft or allograft into the knee. This procedure reliably repairs the knee, allowing a return to sports and resulting in improved function for patients.
