Editorial Reviews

From the book reviews:"The stated goal is to present a practical surgical guide, which this book nicely accomplishes. . Clearly the target audience is orthopedic surgeons as well as residents and fellows in training who will do ACL reconstructions. It will be of special value to orthopedic sports surgeons who already perform a lot of ACL surgeries. . This is a decidedly unique and wonderful addition to the literature." (Mark R. Hutchinson, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2014)
