The ACL is a ligament that gives your knee stability. Younger, active people, especially if you perform cutting/pivoting sports, may find it difficult to return to their full activity because they will feel their knee shift or buckle. Less active or older people many times can perform a lot of activities without issues. So not every ACL tear "needs" surgery. If you have instability, or the feeling that your knee buckles or gives way, with everyday activity or sports that is not good for the knee as it may lead to further damage, and your quality of life is affected, then an ACL reconstruction may be an option.
