ACL's do not "heal" My ortho explained it like the ligament is a rope that is unraveling. The scar tissue will surround it and encapsulate it but it does not heal.
I would be curious if stem cell therapy is an option. I've read things on that and THAT might actually heal it by rebuilding the torn tissue. And if it is, would be a fairly non invasive treatment though I"m sure it will cost about teh same as the surgery.
At her age, just have the surgery. I did conservative management with Jax and a year later we were having the surgery anyways.
