What will my knee be like? and What percentage of normal will it be?
There is not a precise answer to these questions. The idea is complete 100% function, but our goal would be to achieve at least 85-95% of normal value, assuming no complications, good motivation, and adequate rehabilitation. It must be remembered that if you could tear your normal ligament, you could certainly tear the replacement. However, our experience has shown that this occurrence is rare. In fact, there is a greater likelihood that you will tear your other knee’s ACL before you tear the reconstruction.
