This program features an impressive collection of ACL reconstruction videos, according to the program’s editor, Donald Johnson, MD, of Ottawa, Canada.

"For the first time, orthopaedists can observe virtually any aspect of ACL reconstructive surgery on a graft specific basis (e.g. patellar tendon, hamstring, quad tendon and allograft) and fixation specific basis (e.g. interference screws, end button and cross-pin) with astonishing video quality."

Prepare for the unexpected with the program’s unique pitfall’s section. The convenient menu makes it quick and easy to locate a specific program topic. Hyperlinks to special features, a self-assessment exam, and relevant literature are provided as well.
