Factors influencing knee meniscus surgery include tear type, location, patient age, and overall knee health, determining the most suitable treatment approach.

ACL tear diagnosis involves a physical exam, imaging (MRI), and sometimes arthroscopy to assess the extent of ligament damage in the knee joint.

ACL tear surgical repair involves reconstructing the torn ligament using grafts, promoting knee stability and function postoperatively.

ACL tear symptoms include pain, swelling, instability, and a popping sensation in the knee, requiring prompt medical evaluation.

ACL tear treatment options: rest, therapy, or surgery, chosen based on injury severity and individual factors.

ACL tear causes include sudden stops, changes in direction, and direct blows to the knee, with risk factors like sports participation and previous injuries.
