A Patient Perspective on ACL Surgery
Jarrett Collins had been hurt before on the football field, but when an opponent crashed into his knee during a game in 2014, the high school senior knew it was a different kind of injury.
Turns out, the contact tore Jarrett’s anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), leaving him unable to walk. Luckily, Robert Shalvoy, MD, executive chief of orthopedics for Care New England, was on the sidelines for his game. Jarrett followed up with Dr. Shalvoy, who later performed a computer aided ACL repair surgery.
Less than a year later, Jarret was back on the playing field, calling the plays and amazed at how well he’d recovered.
