Break surgery Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) improves functional outcomes of the knee allowing the patient to continue with their active life and sport.

All-Inside is a novel surgical technique that allows the extraction of the tendons of the hamstrings in a minimally invasive manner, through a small incision in the back of the knee. In addition, it is very accurate in preparing the graft and allows you to use only one of the tendons, the Semitendinosus, respecting the gracilis muscle tendon and preserving its function as a knee flexor. Thus further improving its strength.

This surgery involves making tunnels in the femur and tibia from within the joint, whereby the tissue (tendons patient in most cases) is about to be the reconstruct the ligament. To do this, you only need to make small incisions in the anterior aspect of the knee, where you enter the video camera and instruments needed for reconstruction.
