Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction Guidebook
This is an example of the guidebook given to patients who come to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH. Patients at other Dartmouth-Hitchcock facilities will experience a similar journey during their ACL surgery.
Now that you have decided to have ACL reconstructive surgery, we want to help answer some questions that patients often have. Our goal is to provide you with information about what you can expect before, during, and after your stay with us.
You can also open and save a copy of the PDF version of the ACL Reconstruction Guidebook.
This guidebook is divided into four sections to make it easy for you to find the information you need, no matter which stage of the process you are in. Throughout the book, you will see tips from one of our ACL patients, Sarah Fittro. We hope you will find inspiration and helpful guidance from someone who has been through this surgery and recovery.
Please bring this guidebook with you to your appointments and to the hospital on the day of your surgery to use as a reference tool and to make additional notes.
