JBJS Webinar Oct. 26: ACL Reconstruction


Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries affect knee function and quality of life for thousands of young, active people every year. Surgeons reconstructing torn ACLs must help their patients make several treatment-related decisions, including graft choice and postsurgical rehabilitation protocols. On Tuesday, October 26, 2021, a 1-hour complimentary webinar from JBJS will delve into the latest data on these two key questions.

Nicholas Mohtadi, MD
 will present findings from a randomized clinical trial that compared 5-year quality-of-life and clinical outcomes—including reinjury rates—among young ACL patients who received either a patellar-tendon, single-bundle hamstring, or double-bundle hamstring autograft.

Rick Wright, MD
 will then discuss prospective cohort data from the MARS Group that analyzed common rehabilitation protocols used immediately after revision ACL reconstruction and during return-to-sport activities.

Moderated by Robert Marx, MD, the webinar will feature expert commentaries on these consensus-building findings. Ned Amendola, MD will comment on Dr. Mohtadi’s paper, and Elizabeth Matzkin, MD will weigh in on Dr. Wright’s paper.

The webinar will conclude with a 15-minute live Q&A session during which attendees can ask questions of all the panelists.
