Collateral ligament sutures

In most cases, lesions to the collateral ligaments present in combination with other lesions to the knee (cruciate ligaments and meniscal lesions) which also require surgical intervention. These injuries can typically be treated without surgery, but where symptoms persist surgery may be the best option. The procedure here involves suturing the lesion with wire, and using staples to hold everything in place while it heals. Post-operatively, the knee is held at 20° flexion for around 3 weeks.

Post-operative rehabilitation will begin in the gym, slowly building load before aquatherapy starts once the brace is removed. After around 4 months, work on the field will come to an end, sporting activity can resume and any staples used to hold the ligaments in place will be removed.
