Educates Patients

ACL Techniques

During fellowship at the University of Kentucky, Dr. Poulsen learned the latest, recently-developed anatomic ACL surgical techniques. During surgery, it is extremely important that the ACL be reconstructed anatomically (i.e., making sure the native insertion points are recreated).
