Torn ACL @ Pro-AM

Hey Dr. Sanders,

I was down at Actiontown last weekend for the LLQ/Pro-AM and had a nasty get off in friday practice that ended with me landing with my right leg locked. It snapped my asterisk knee brace and left me with a torn ACL in my right knee. Here is my mri report:


Comparison: None

Anterior Cruciate Ligament: Completely Torn

Posterior Cruciate Ligament: Intact without significant abnormality

Medial Collateral Ligament: There is a grade 2 sprain along the anterior aspect of the medial collateral ligament origin.

Lateral Collateral Ligament: Intact

Medial Meniscus: Intact

Lateral Meniscus: Intact

Bone Marrow Signal: Translational contusions are noted anterior aspect of the lateral femoral condyle and posterior tibial plateau. There is also a contusion of the anterolateral tibial plateau.

Joint & Bursal Fluid: There is a moderate size joint effusion.

With all that said, I know I need my ACL repaired and would like to have it done as quickly as possible. My mom wants me to speak to you or one of your staff to see about insurance, out of town patient info etc, i have looked over your site and it has been helpful but still have some questions. I have been prescribed 3 weeks worth of pre-hab starting next wendsday.

Get with my nurse, Michelle, and we will get you on the schedule.
