Surgery of the Cruciate ligament

The front cruciate ligament is the most bonded ligament in our knee– it is responsible for the stabilisation and also has sensory functions.


During every movement the side ligaments and the both cruciate ligaments are responsible for the stabilisation of the knee joint. The front cruciate ligament, which connects the thigh-bone with the tibia, is the most important and at the same time most bonded one of the joint. It prevents that the tibia slips, compared to the thigh-bone, to the front and together with the other ligaments it limits the rotation of the joint.
