Chronic medial knee instability is frequently due to a combination of superficial medial collateral ligament (sMCL) and posterior oblique ligament (POL) insufficiency. We present a new technique for simultaneous anatomical reconstruction of sMCL and POL, using an anterior tibialis tendon allograft with three reconstruction tunnels.
