JBJS/JOSPT Webinar: Injured ACLs—To Operate or Not

ACL ImageWhether and when to surgically treat injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) remain difficult questions for patients, doctors, and physical therapists to answer.

On Wednesday, March 30, 2016 at 12:30 pm EDT, a complimentary webinar, hosted jointly by JBJS and the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy (JOSPT), will arm orthopaedists and physical therapists with up-to-date information to help ensure the best possible clinical decisions for patients with ACL injuries.

Hege Grindem, PT PhD, will present the JBJS paper, “Nonsurgical or Surgical Treatment of ACL Injuries,” and Vincent Eggerding, MD, will present the JOSPT systematic review, “Factors Related to the Need for Surgical Reconstruction After ACL Rupture.”

Moderated by JBJS Deputy Editor Robert Marx, MD, the webinar will include additional perspectives on these clinical questions from three ACL
experts, Daniel Whelan, MD, Lynn Snyder-Mackler, PT, ScD, and Lars Engebretsen, MD.
