Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bach There have been some tremendous advances in orthopedic sports medicine. Just taking my situation for example, I had an injury to my knee tore my anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments and it essentially terminated my intercollegiate career in football and baseball. And since the mid 80 s, we have been performing anterior cruciate ligament surgery on an outpatient basis. I ve performed these all outpatient since 1993. I do over 100 ACLs a year. I ve done over 2000 ligament reconstructions. And we ve critically analyzed clinically how our patients have done, and 95 percent of the patients have stable knees. Ninety-five percent of the patients are completely or mostly satisfied. Our clinical reoperation rate is extremely low. Our clinical revision rate is 1.5 percent. So this is an operation that now can be done on an outpatient basis with a very predictable outcome that allows individuals to continue to be active in hard-cutting, pivoting, sports.
