Anteior Cruciate Ligament (ACL ) or Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Injury is quite common in sportspersons. If there is complete tear in the ACL / PCL then it would most probably require surgery. The surgery for ACL / PCL repair is normally done one month after the injury when the inflammation due to the injury has completely subsided. In this surgery the surgeon sometimes uses anchors to fix the Cruciate Ligament. The surgery takes around 2 hours and the patient is back on feet on the next day after the surgery. Dr Harjoban Singh and Dr Praveen Tittal are considered as two of the best arthroscopic surgeons doing this surgery in India. Dr Harjoban Singh is available at Bahra Hospital, Mohali while Dr Praveen Tittal is available at Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon.
The cost for PCL repair is slightly more than the ACL Repair Surgery as the implant used is different. The time taken in PCL repair is also more than the ACL Repair. The cost of Arthroscpic PCL repair using imported FDA approved implants is around USD 2500-3000 in a single deluxe room at our hospital while that of ACL repair would be in the range of USD 2000 - 2500. The hospitalization is for 1-2 days and the patient would require rehabilitation after the surgery. The patient would be able to achieve full mobility within 6 months after the surgery. The patient will have to stay in India for around one week which would cost approximately USD 200 for two persons for hotel stay and another USD 100 for all meals for two people. Total cost of treatment for ACL Repair in India would be maximum USD 3000 while total cost for PCL Repair would be maximum USD 3500.
For any Ligament Surgery, post surgery rehab is extremely important. The surgeon might have done a perfect job but if proper physiotherapy is not done after the surgery then the results would not be as good. We give special emphasis on post surgery rehabilitation. Our team of physiotherapists start working with you while you are admitted at the hospital and continue to provide the rehab services once you are discharged from the hospital and move to the hotel or the guest house. We have established a platform where you can interact with operating surgeon and physiotherapists through facebook. You can post your questions and videos of the exercises and our doctors will guide you until you achieve complete fitness. This service is free of cost and you do not pay anything for followup consults with our doctors through the online medium.
