Advances in Knee Surgery For Athletes

Posted on March 22, 2016 to News and Press

From the operating room to recovery, Dr. Clayton Lane offers an exclusive view of the new techniques being used in ACL surgery today.

Surgeons have been trying to repair anterior cruciate ligament tears for a century, but until the last 25 years they were unsuccessful. In the last decade success rates have climbed to nearly 100% thanks to better technology and surgical techniques.

WPMI’s Lance Crawford followed AOC’s Dr. Clayton Lane into the operating room to witness those advances.
