We still have many unanswered questions about patient satisfaction after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
- Do specific patient populations benefit from more or fewer physical therapy (PT) visits?
- Does the cost of PT affect patient satisfaction?
- Should patients be classified by factors beyond their medical diagnoses to achieve the best outcomes while minimizing costs?
- What are the rates and predictors of return to play after ACL reconstruction? Does graft choice play a role?
- What is the relationship between return to play and patient satisfaction?
On Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 8:00 PM EST, the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy (JOSPT) and The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (JBJS) will host a complimentary* LIVE webinar that addresses these important and clinically applicable questions.
JOSPT co-author Caitlin J. Miller, PT, DPT, will share the results of a retrospective cohort study examining the relationship between patient demographics, number of physical therapy visits, and the cost of postoperative interventions with revision rates and patient-reported outcomes following primary ACL reconstruction.
JBJS co-author Benedict U. Nawachukwu, MD, MBA, will discuss findings from a study of return to play and patient satisfaction among athletes following ACL reconstruction. This study also explores the efficacy of patellar tendon autografts and the preinjury impact of certain sports.
Moderated by Tara Jo Manal, PT, DPT, OCS, SCS, FAPTA, a leading authority on the spine and the knee, the webinar will include additional insights from expert commentators Mark V. Paterno, PT, PhD, MBA, SCS, ATC, and Elizabeth Matzkin, MD. The last 15 minutes will be devoted to a live Q&A session between the audience and panelists.
