In this video, Dr Jeff Berg and I talk about the ACL graft choices you have.  In order to reconstruct your new ACL we need to use a tendon as a graft.  During the surgery we will place that new tendon where your ACL tear was.  Your choice of which ACL graft to use can impact your overall chance of success and the risk of a second ACL injury.

As you likely know there are two broad categories:

Allograft or cadaveric tissue.

Autograft: tissue from your own body.

Take a look at the video about ACL graft choices and let us know what you think.
