Controversies in the Technical Aspects of ACL Reconstruction

Dr. Marx’s new book edited with Dr. Nakamura, Dr. Zaffagnini, and Dr. Musahl, Controversies in the Technical Aspects of ACL Reconstruction, takes an evidence-based medicine approach to discuss the existing controversies in ACL reconstructive surgery techniques. Evidence-based medicine, or when a physician uses the best available literature to assist in decision-making for a patient, aims to optimize a treatment plan for a given patient. Though there is not always an ideal answer for a specific clinical scenario, this book illustrates both sides of the dilemma in as unbiased manner as possible.
