Knee Technique Guide

In order to address the limitations of the conventional transtibial technique and the technical issues associated with double-bundle ACL reconstruction, we have developed a “footprint” technique that reliably provides an anatomic, single-bundle ACL reconstruction with minimal technical complications. This technique merges the principles of footprint anatomy and anatomic ACL reconstruction with the modified anteromedial portal drilling technique by utilizing a flexible passing pin and drilling system.
