Patient Comments: Torn ACL - Diagnosis

Describe the events that led to a diagnosis of a torn ACL.

Comment from: Scott, 45-54 Male (Patient) Published: January 30

Having had three previous surgeries to the right knee I am familiar with the symptoms and therefore I was able to self-diagnose the damage that occurred. I consulted with my family physician requesting an MRI scan to confirm the belief that I had torn the previous ACL graft.
