Arthroscopic Surgery to Replace a Young Athlete's ACL

Akron, OH - While the incidence of most sports-related injuries has been holding steady for the past two decades, injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) continue to increase significantly, particularly in female athletes. In fact, on many college teams, as many as 30 to 50 percent of young women have had an ACL injury during their high school careers in certain sports, such as basketball, soccer and gymnastics.

Watch pediatric orthopedic surgeons at Akron Children's Hospital perform arthroscopic surgery to replace a young athlete's ACL during a live OR Webcast on Tuesday, Oct. 17, 12 to 1 p.m. Kerwyn Jones, M.D., will perform the surgery, while Mark Adamczyk, M.D., will serve as the Webcast moderator.
