On Thursday, Sept. 27 at 5:30 p.m. CDT, during a live global Webcast from the Roger Clemens Institute for Sports Medicine and Human Performance at Memorial Hermann in Houston, Texas, orthopedic surgeon Mark Adickes, M.D. will perform an innovative ACL reconstruction surgery designed to hasten rehabilitation and recovery time.
"For patients, the typical goal is to return to activities quickly and without pain , but, if they 're going to have reconstruction surgery, the repair should be durable and should allow them to return to normal activity without limitations," said Adickes. "The All-Inside RetroConstruction procedure is minimally invasive and achieves all of these goals."
Adickes, a former NFL offensive lineman and member of the 1991 Super Bowl Championship Washington Redskins team, is one of the original three surgeons in the country to perform this new technique. Having had two ACL procedures himself and experiencing 18-month recoveries, he was determined to find advanced surgical solutions for his patients.
‚ÄúThe results my patients are getting from this procedure are dramatic,‚ÄĚ said Adickes. ‚ÄúRecovery time has been reduced and there is less pain because there‚Äôs not the damage to the tissue that a standard ACL reconstruction can cause.‚ÄĚ
