Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a structure in the middle of the knee that provides stability, particularly with sports that involve cutting. An ACL tear is a common injury in athletes. The ligament cannot be predictably repaired, but reconstruction of the ligament, rebuilding it from other tissue, restores the stability of the knee and allows the athlete to return to sports after a period of rehabilitation.
The picture shows a reconstructed ACL fixed within the knee.

Dr.Mair and his staff and interns are the best orthopedic office I've ever been to. Knowledgable, friendly, professional, caring...Even if I'm in pain I look forward to my visit because I know they will do whatever can be done to improve my condition. Superior medical knowledge and interaction with me as a patient and a person.
Wonderful provider - Wonderful experience. Very comforting to be in his care.
Came to Dr. Marie (Mair) as a second opinion because I did not like the way I was treated at another practice. Dr. Marie (Mair) listened to my questions and gave me a wealth of knowledge to make an educated decision on what to do about my injury.
