Thanks for writing to us.
Gout is a problem due to deposition of uric acid crystals in the joint spaces causing pain and inflammation. It is not related to the ligament tear that you have suffered. Both the conditions need to be treated separately.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
