Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL)

Both the ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) and PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) are crucial ligaments within the knee joint. The PCL is situated at the rear of the knee and plays a vital role in preventing the tibia from moving backward. PCL tears typically occur when a powerful force impacts the ligament, often happening in contact sports or when the knee is bent and strikes a surface. Such tears can result in knee instability, often requiring reconstruction surgery to repair the damage. This procedure is minimally invasive and conducted using an arthroscope. Below are various related procedures performed based on the specific case:


  1. Knee Arthroscopy
  2. ACL Reconstruction
  3. PCL Reconstruction
  4. Meniscus Surgery
  5. Articular Cartilage Repair
  6. Medial & Lateral Ligament Repair
  7. Arthroscopic Arthrolysis
  8. Multi Ligament Reconstruction
  9. Dislocating Patella Surgery
  10. High Tibial Osteotomy (HTO)
  11. Unicompartmental Knee Replacement
  12. Total Knee Replacement


These procedures aim to address a wide range of knee issues and restore the joint’s stability, mobility, and overall function, depending on the specific condition and its severity.
