Patients in their own words ...
“The improvement from what I could do then to what I can do now is like night and day..I am enjoying life like it used to be.”
Gary, Meniscus allograft transplant
“Eleven years later I’m very active. The only thing I don’t do is run. However I do bike 100 to 150 miles a week, I surf, play golf, and snowboard. I’ve enjoyed having my life back and having an active life back”
Tim R., BioKnee
“I'm 6.5 years out. At 41 years old, I play competitive ice hockey, train intensely, and have very little pain, if any, in my medial transplant knee. Outstanding result.”
Rich W., Meniscus allograft transplant
“Dr. Stone’s surgery has been a revelation to me, it’s totally enabled me to continue being who I am which is way more than just the sports that I do. It's part of my personality and I’m thrilled.”
Emily S., Endurance Athlete, BioKnee
“I was told I was never going to ski again. And I came back. I did two ski films. Some of my best ski film work. I signed with Völkl International and have had the best three years of my professional skiing career.”
The ACL Study Group meets every two years to update the latest knowledge on ACL injuries and treatments. This year’s meeting was at the base of the Hahnenkamm ski race in Kitzbuhel Austria—the most famous downhill ski race on the World Cup circuit. One hundred and fifty of the world’s top ACL surgeons watched 30 of the world’s bravest ski racers hurtle down the ice-crusted hill at 140 km/h (84 mph). The outcome of the race was predictable: The Austrians dominated. The outcome of the scientific meeting, however, was less conclusive; the ACL is still a tough problem to solve.
Ski bindings have not substantially changed in decades. But skis and ski boot soles have, and therein lies the danger. Many bindings no longer work with all ski boots, and there is a growing mismatch between binding design and ski performance.
