There are 4 major ligaments in the knee. The ligaments in the knee connect the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shin bone). 

When ligaments are damaged, the knee joint may become unstable. Ligament damage often occurs from a sports injury. A torn ligament severely limits knee movement, resulting in the inability to pivot, turn, or twist the leg. Surgery is an option to repair a torn ligament if other medical treatment is not effective.

Knee ligament repair is a treatment for a complete tear of a knee ligament that results in instability in the knee. Persons with a torn knee ligament may be unable to do normal activities that involve twisting or turning at the knee. The knee may buckle or “give-way.” If medical treatments are not satisfactory, ligament repair surgery may be an effective treatment. 

The surgery to correct a torn knee ligament involves replacing the ligament with a piece of healthy tendon.

There may be other reasons for your healthcare provider to recommend a knee ligament repair.
