Driving After ACL Surgery

  • Reduced Reaction Times Become Normal After Six Weeks
  • Cadaver Tissue vs. Tissue Obtained From Patient's Body Show Difference

The "safe to return to driving", call by physicians offering guidance after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) surgery on the right (driving) knee might vary by type of surgery according to a recent study. Patients who had their ligament repaired with tissue obtained from a cadaver trended toward normal brake reaction times at three weeks, versus the six week interval for those patients who were grafted with tissue obtained from their own body. In all patients, significantly slower reaction times were shown to occur immediately (7-10 days) after surgery but generally resolved by the six-week point. A six-week driving restriction appears appropriate after any ACL surgery, with allowances for individual rehabilitation.

ACL Repair Still Effective at 20-Year Mark
