Hello doctor,

We have consulted a doctor after an accident. He suggested physiotherapy and after that only operation is possible. Also, not giving 100 % cure. I am coming here for a second opinion. Please check MRI and suggest any possibility for 100 % cure. The accident happened a month back.



Welcome to

First of all, as per MRI, it is totally a ligamentous injury (attachment removed to protect patient identity). There is no bony discontinuity. In that case, nothing is done acutely except early repair of the medial collateral ligament. His injury was almost one month back. Now do the prescribed physiotherapy for six weeks from the date of injury. Then your doctor will be examining you clinically and will proceed for ligament reconstruction. As per MRI (no clinical details available), the patient will require reconstruction of the medial collateral ligament, anterior cruciate ligament, and balancing of the meniscus. The only thing to take care is that knee should not get stiff. Hence, physiotherapy and regular exercises of the knee is a must.
