What happens during anterior cruciate ligament surgery?
Cruciate ligament surgery process and aftercare
Cruciate ligament surgery takes between one and a half to two hours. You’ll be ready to have surgery once your swelling has gone down. This usually takes between three to eight weeks from the moment of your injury.
To help put your mind at rest, all our cruciate ligament surgery patients receive an aftercare package service. This includes a follow-up appointment with a consultant.
