An anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or medial collateral ligament (MCL) tear can be very painful. Both are injuries to the knee and understandably can bring difficulty in walking, standing, or even sleeping. The surgery to fix the tears involves making small incisions to reconstruct the ligaments using an allograft (tissue taken from another person) or autograft (a patient’s own tissue). It is an arthroscopic surgery. It is a day surgery so you would have it in the morning and be discharged in the afternoon to recover at home or hotel.
It is definitely something that most people do not want to wait a long time to have fixed. However, it is still considered an elective surgery, and therefore, Canadians are put on the waitlist. The waitlists vary from province to province.
If you are experiencing delays and the mobility issue is affecting your ability to work and enjoy life, we can connect you to a private facility and make all the logistical arrangements for you. We work with some of the most skilled surgeons here in Canada and in the US. We have been guiding our clients through their medical travel for over 5 years.
So, what is required to get started? We will need your medical records, most notably, the diagnostic tests such as MRI and X-ray of the area. If you have seen any specialists about the issue, their notes are also very helpful. Usually, we can arrange a review of medical records within 3-5 business days. The actual surgery can happen 1-4 weeks after the medical records review and this timing will depend on your surgeon and your availability.
