Heisey, HGB orthopedic surgeon, offers less invasive ACL reconstruction

Dr. Meredith Heisey with Mid-Michigan Orthopaedic Institute is bringing a new, less-invasive anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, reconstruction procedure to Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital.
 
One of the most common knee injuries is an ACL tear. The ACL is one of four major knee ligaments and it is critical for knee stability. An ACL injury is most commonly sports related, especially in sports that involve sudden stops and changes in direction like basketball, soccer or volleyball. A torn ACL that requires surgery can't be repaired, it must be replaced.
