ACL injuries are common knee injuries among sports players and people who are regularly physically active. ACL injuries refer to damage to the anterior cruciate ligament, the band of tissue that holds the bones of the knee together.

With a torn and damaged ACL, the knee loses its stability, bears an immense pressure while walking or playing sports, and becomes a source of agonizing pain. Physical therapy and non-surgical treatments have shown excellent results for ACL injuries. However, in patients with a complete tear in the ACL, surgery is the most effective solution.

Kris is one of our patients who underwent ACL Reconstruction. When he visited Manhattan Orthopedic Care, he presented almost all symptoms of a torn ACL: pain, weakness, popping sounds in the knee, stiffness, and swelling.

Dr. Armin Tehrany, one of the best knee specialists in New York, immediately recognized the problem and diagnosed Kris within only a few minutes during his appointment. Since the rupture was severe and required prompt treatment, Dr. Tehrany recommended proceeding with ACL Reconstruction.

ACL Reconstruction is an outpatient arthroscopic procedure to reconstruct or replace a damaged or torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Luckily for Kris, Dr. Tehrany is one of the top New York knee surgeons specialized in the arthroscopic treatment of the knee. Together with his PA, Tim, Dr. Tehrany performed the arthroscopic ACL reconstruction.

Kris tolerated the procedure extremely well. Moreover, his recovery had a fast pace and he transitioned back into his everyday activities in no time.

Thanks to Dr. Tehrany’s fantastic skills and profound knowledge, the entire surgical experience was a smooth process for Kris.

Super excited about the results, Kris decided to share his MOC experience on Google with an amazing review:

“100% great experience, Dr. Armin Tehrany and his team are really helpful, they walked me through with all the process, and they explained everything I needed to know perfectly.

I will definitely recommend Dr. Tehrany!”

This patient was treated at the Staten Island Office.
