Knee Ligament Repair

When ligaments are damaged, often from a sports-related injury, the knee joint becomes unstable. A torn ligament severely limits knee movement and can affect your daily activities and quality of life. The surgery to correct a torn knee ligament involves replacing the ligament with a piece of healthy tendon.

Knee ligament repairs at Jefferson are performed by orthopedic surgeons who are consistently rated Top Doctors by Philadelphia magazine. Each year we evaluate about 35,000 athletes and perform more than 4,000 reconstructive surgeries related to sports injuries.
