The article offers information on various procedures to manage complicated knee ligament injuries in the U.S. It mentions an initial assessments of the knee is done to assess the extent of damage on the tissue and ligaments. Different types of reconstructive surgeries, including combined posterior cruciate and anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, lateral-sided reconstruction and medial collaterial ligament and posteromedial reconstruction, for the knees are also discussed.
