Understanding ACL Reconstruction

ACL reconstruction is a surgical procedure primarily aimed at athletes and physically active individuals who have torn their ACL, resulting in knee instability. The surgery involves replacing the torn ACL with a graft taken from the patient's own body (autograft) or a donor (allograft). This procedure is generally recommended when the ACL injury is severe or if the patient wishes to return to sports or high-level physical activities. It's crucial to understand that post-surgery rehabilitation is an integral part of the recovery and getting back to normal activities.

Preparing for ACL Reconstruction

The preparation for ACL reconstruction involves a thorough evaluation of the knee through physical examination and imaging studies like X-rays or MRI. Patients may be asked to follow certain dietary restrictions, stop certain medications, and quit smoking. Physiotherapy exercises before the surgery can also help improve the outcomes.

The Procedure

During an ACL reconstruction, the surgeon makes small incisions around the knee. The damaged ACL is removed, and the graft is prepared. The surgeon drills tunnels into the thigh bone and shin bone to place the graft in the position of the original ACL. Then, the graft is secured with screws or other fixation devices. This procedure is typically performed using arthroscopy, which involves smaller incisions, less pain, and quicker recovery.

ACL Reconstruction Recovery

Post-surgery, patients typically spend a few hours in the hospital. A brace may be used to protect the knee, and crutches may be necessary for a while. A physiotherapy program is vital in the recovery phase to regain knee strength and mobility. The recovery timeline can vary, but most patients can expect to return to sports or physically demanding activities in 6 to 9 months.

The Costs of ACL Reconstruction

ACL reconstruction in Thailand is significantly more affordable than in many Western countries. The average cost ranges from $7,000 to $10,000, which can vary based on the choice of hospital and surgeon. It's essential to remember that this cost estimate doesn't include the expenses for travel and accommodation.

Emergency operation and post-surgery checkup

"I live in New Zealand, and my partner and I went on a holiday in Laos (Asia). I became sick and needed an emergency stomach operation. I reached out to this company, and they have been nothing but helpful.

They helped us with translating in Laos; they organised a taxi driver who was waiting for us at arrival and drove us to the hospital, where they organised a scan for me. I only needed to show my passport and an email when I arrived. I was already in the system for the appointment.

Everything went really smoothly. The company is professional and reliable, and the staff is super friendly too. I would highly recommend this company. I am grateful for the great service this company offered when I was in need."

Cataract surgery & Gastroscopy + Colonoscopy

Konkai is an awesome team that’s 100% determined to helping the patient going an extra mile. This exactly has been my experience.

From the hotel booking to taking appointments with the top level doctors in the hospital that’s most favorable to patient. Which was with me and my wife.

My experience further with Konkai was even to the extent of coordinating financial matters when there was an urgency. My wife and I cannot express with my words enough for the awesome services discharged by Konkai.

Post surgery the follow up and support to patient is amazing beyond explanation. It’s more than 8 weeks after my surgery and their regular touch for feed backs and follow up constantly checking as to how things are going? This is not a normal thing in the medical field. Anyone can blindly trust Konkai and be a member of their family.

Thank you
