Infection Following ACL Reconstruction

Despite the current sterile techniques used for all surgeries, infections are always a possibility following ACL reconstruction. Infections, however, occur rarely -- in only 4 out of 10,000 procedures. The treatment options will vary, depending on the location of the infection. Infections can range from minor ones that are only treated with antibiotics to major infections requiring a repeat surgery. If an infection develops within the knee, this requires several weeks of antibiotics and repeated knee arthroscopy procedures until the infection is eliminated. If an infection does develop, your doctor will discuss the treatment options and expected outcomes with you.
