Re: Injured knee…
The research shows there is no difference in graft location as to the outcome of reconstructions. The major difference is quality of surgeons!!! The most important factor is actually the placement of the graft inside the knee. One thing to look at is the issue of the quality of your collagen – if you are hyoermobile generally, might even pay to use allograft. All things to ask your surgeon.
The other point is that on the 2nd reco it is a 12 month rehab period – which should be the case with all reco’s anyway but that is another issue.
Even after 1 reco the rate of OA is increased, which is increased after 2. I have seen plenty of people come back after 2 recos, but 1 more on the same knee and it is career over!!!!
