MOR Physicians Research Incidence and Trends of ACL Reconstruction

Two Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush sports medicine physicians, Dr. Brian Cole and Dr. Bernard Bach, were involved in ACL reconstruction research recently published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine.

The study found that the incidence of ACL reconstruction increased between 1994 and 2006, particularly in females as well as those younger than 20 years and those 40 years or older. It also suggested that research efforts as well as cost-saving measures may be best served by targeting prevention and outcomes measures among in these groups.
