Dear all,

A couple of days ago, one of our students (a young adult of age 24) had a sport accident with injury to his right knee. He has extensive injury to his ACL (rapture). However, his PCL is intact. Two of our specialist colleagues have suggested him two obviously different treatments!
The first specialist wants to put a cast on his knee for several weeks followed by a period of physio. He believes that this will heal the injured ACL with some possible minor limitations in his movement.
On the contrary, the second specialist suggests an immediate one-month physiotherapy, which will be followed by a surgery on his knee to restore his complete movements.

I am wondering if anyone can compare these two treatments or suggest any
other ones.

Thank you very much for your attention,

F. Bahrami
