ACL Preservation Q&A with Gregory S. DiFelice, MD—July 29, 2015

Dr. Gregory DiFelice, orthopedic surgeon at HSS, participates in a Q&A on ACL preservation on Arthrex Blog.

Dr. DiFelice covers off on the latest ACL preservation news and how his experience has changed his approach on all patients with ACL injuries.

"The great majority of my ACL preservation patients have recovered quickly, and with good outcomes," said Dr. DiFelice. "A patient detailed that he had full range of motion within one week and that since one-week post-op, he had been commuting an hour and 15 minutes each way to work via train with a lot of standing and walking. He explained that he didn't have any significant swelling or discomfort after the first week despite these long hours on his feet."
