Caption: Knee surgery. Surgeon removing tools in the closing stages of an operation to reconstruct a patient's anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). This ligament stabilises the knee joint and is commonly ruptured in sportsmen and women. In this operation, ligaments were harvested from the pes anserinus ligament structure in the thigh. These were then made into a graft and passed through the knee joint to replace the damaged ACL. The parts of the operation in the knee joint were carried out arthroscopically, using a thin tube rather than opening the joint up. This reduces recovery time. Photographed at the Cochin Hospital in Paris, France.
