How Is Bridge-Enhanced® ACL Restoration (BEAR) Performed?
#1 – The First BEAR ACL
What is the ACL?
ACL stands for Anterior Cruciate Ligament and it is one of four major ligaments in the knee. The ACL connects the anterior (front) part of the tibia (shin bone) to the posterior (back) part of the femur (thigh bone). It prevents the tibia from sliding forward on the femur but more importantly when cutting, pivoting, or turning to the opposite side, it prevents that knee from giving out in a twisting fashion.
Bridge-Enhanced® ACL Restoration (BEAR) Surgery vs ACL Reconstruction
For the BEAR procedure, a surgeon makes an incision near the patient’s knee to insert the sponge between the torn ends of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament. The rest of the procedure is done arthroscopically.
