Surgical vs Non-Surgical Management 

Our approach involves team decision-making with your orthopaedic specialist and other relevant healthcare specialists, considering: 

  • The degree of your injury and the level of instability of your knee 
  • Associated injuries to your meniscus and/or other ligaments such as the MCL, PCL or LCL
  • Your individual goals and the demands of your chosen sport and activity
