ACL Tear Repair with Fibre Tape Internal Brace
Early attempts to do ACL repair were disappointing as the technology at that time was poor and the prolonged period of knee immobilization was required to protect the repaired ACL which often results in severe knee stiffness and poor results.

So, for the last 30 years, we are focused on removing the torn ACL and reconstructing it with hamstring tendons or other tissues Harvested from the other parts of the body. With biological advancement and increase understanding of the cellular function, we have identified the importance of mechanoreceptors Nerve cells in the anterior cruciate ligament. These receptors identify the stretch on ACL and REFLEXLY activate the hamstrings automatically to protects the anterior cruciate ligament from injury. Unfortunately during the ACL reconstruction, these mechanoreceptors are removed surgically and the reflex is lost and never recovers completely after the surgery, this increases the chances of ACL Re-injury and knee arthritis.
With the fibre tape internet brace, it is now possible to repair the torn ACL and the ACL repair is protected by the internal brace during its healing period And the knee can be mobilized immediately after the surgery. the fibre tape internal brace is only 2 MM in thickness and it is very different from the synthetic ligaments, it does not replace the original ACL but protects it from failure during its healing period preserving the original ACL tissue and mechanoreceptors resulting in a better outcome and return to sports and work is very quick. Patience and athletes feel more confident about their knees. Experienced Less pain, swelling, muscle wasting, and witnessed improved outcomes. Chances of Re-injury and future arthritis are significantly reduced and they can resume sports within three months of the surgery. ACL repair with an internal brace is very different from ACL reconstruction as it is less traumatic for the knee joint, does not involve the harvesting of hamstring tendons and drilling large bone tunnels, it also allows the patient to recover quickly with more confident knee
Anterolateral Ligament (ALL)
Anterior lateral ligament is a very thin 4cm ligament present outside the knee joint on the lateral side. This ligament is very crucial for knee stability and is often injured with the anterior cruciate ligament injury. Studies have proved that if the anterior lateral ligament is also injured during the ACL tear and if it is not repaired during the ACL repair or reconstruction, then there is a higher chance of ACL surgery failure or re-tear. Fibre tape internal brace of the anterior lateral ligament is a minimally invasive percutaneous additional surgical step during the ACL reconstruction or repair surgery and it significantly improves the surgical outcome. Patients and athletes feel more confident knee and chances of ACL Re-tear and surgical failure are reduced significantly after the surgery as ALL fiber tape internal brace provides good stability to the knee and reduces the stress on the new or repaired ACL.
While the widespread adoption of InternalBrace technology is revolutionising the treatment of ligament injuries, it is by no means the only major clinical advance in this area. However, one technique, in particular, is working particularly well when used in conjunction with the internal brace.
ACL Avulsion Repair
Arthroscopic Minimally invasive ACL avulsion repair surgery is for ACL avulsion with a tibial spine fracture. Our goal is to save your original ACL and not too reconstruct it. tibial spine avulsion with ACL is again fixed to the tibial plateau with the help of Fibre tape internal brace and tightrope RT. This advanced fracture fixation technique allows early mobilization and the athlete can get back into sports and run within three months of the surgery.
