Hi Jeremy! I was also born without an acl, but only in my left knee. In addition, my left leg was shorter than my right leg, but they lengthened it so its no longer an issue (more or less) I'm glad to hear about other people with this issue! It is some what isolating having such an unusual condition. Have they tried any acl replacements on your knees? They've tried two in mine but neither have worked. My doctor is urging me to get a third one, but I'm not too up for all that rehab again. Besides, I've taken a lot of physical therapy and now I feel stronger, although my knee has begun cracking if I bend it. I'd love to hear some of your experience and advice! :)

Hello everyone,
We have an almost 2-year-old boy and it was found that he lacks anterior cruciate ligaments on both knees.
I wanted to ask, when did they find out you missed it?
Was it to know you didn't have them?
The son has legs in x(genua valga) when he stands up, another time he has them straight.
Did you wear any braces as a child?
I apologize for my English, we are from the Czech Republic.

Thank you for any answers
Tereza
