Kochi: Doctors at VPS Lakeshore successfully performed the first Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction using Ultrabutton Technology in India. According to doctors, the new technique helps in preserving remnants of the tissue, which in turn helps in preserving propioception and quicker healing.

 

The surgery was performed on Binu Kumar, a native of Karunagapally in Kollam district, by a medical team comprising Dr. Jacob Varghese and Dr.Bipin Theruvil. Binu Kumar suffered injury while playing cricket. The patient was discharged within two days after the surgery, according to the hospital. The doctors said that tension of the ligament can be fine tuned even after fixation.
