  • ACL Surgery and Biologics

    Welcome to another "Sports Doc Talk" episode with your hosts, Will Sanchez and renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Grant Garcia. In this episode, we dive into ACL injuries, surgeries, and biologics. We discuss cutting-edge treatments for ACL injuries, including the concepts of the "fertilized ACL," tightrope fixation, Bridge enhanced ACL repair (BEAR), Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC.) The back-and-forth banter is a bonus or possible distraction.
