The Physicians

ACL Tear Repair (Knee)

Anterior Crucial Ligament Tear Repair

The anterior crucial ligament (ACL) is a key component of overall knee stability and prevents excessive motion of the knee joint while the legs are in motion. ACL tears are typically sports related, but may also occur as a result of a motor vehicle collision, a fall, rough play, or a work-related injury. When injury occurs, most patients might feel a “pop” and then feel as if the knee has simply given out from under them.

The Raleigh-Durham Leader in ACL Tear Repair

The physicians at the North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic are part of a nationally-recognized team of surgeons who specialize in anterior crucial ligament tear repair and other orthopaedic issues. ACL tear repair specialists Louis C. Almekinders, MD and Lee H. Diehl, MD have more than 14 years of experience diagnosing and treating ACL injuries and tears.

For some, ACL tear repair surgery is the best option. Others may simply need supervised rehabilitation. No matter what your ultimate diagnosis, Dr. Almekinders or Dr. Diehl offer a comprehensive, caring approach that begins with a careful analysis of your medical history. From the final diagnosis, he will present all surgical and non-surgical options available to allow you to make an informed decision.
