Cruciate ligament tear – our treatment

Injuries of the anterior and posterior cruciate ligament are not uncommon. A cruciate ligament rupture can be treated conservatively, for example with physiotherapeutic exercises, or by means of cruciate ligament surgery (tendon replacement plastic surgery or suturing of the cruciate ligament). Which therapy is indicated for you depends, among other things, on the type of cruciate ligament tear and other additional injuries to your knee joint. Our specialists at Schoen Clinic Neustadt specialise in the surgical treatment of cruciate ligament ruptures and combined injury patterns, including knee joint dislocation. The entire surgical spectrum of joint-preserving knee joint surgery is covered, with the focus on minimally invasive (arthroscopic) surgical techniques. This usually shortens the duration of your recovery after a cruciate ligament tear, so that you are mobile and fit again sooner. This expertise is particularly beneficial for you as an amateur or professional athlete, as it allows you to get back into your sport very quickly after a cruciate ligament tear.
