Multiligament knee injuries pose a significant challenge to military service members looking to return to active duty service. They represent a diverse injury pattern and recovery is often complicated by other ipsilateral extremity trauma and systemic injuries. There is a paucity of high-quality evidence guiding the treatment of these injuries. Despite this, orthopedic surgeons are tasked with a young, active, high demand population looking to maximize their recovery after these complex injuries. We present a synthesis of the available civilian and military literature and provide an evidence-based review with considerations specific to a military population.
