ACL Injuries And Reconstruction Related To Soccer Atlanta, GA
doctor making notes

The sport of soccer is known for players injuring their ACL. Players like Francesco Toti (Roma/Italy striker), Theo Walcott (Arsenal/England winger) and Kurt Zouma (Chelsea/France defender) have all suffered from an ACL tear. Playing soccer demands a lot of stopping, starting, quick movements and tackling maneuvers. All of these movements can lead your leg and knee to end up in a situation that they are not made to be in.

With the arrival of the Atlanta United FC team, we will most likely see a rise in the interest in soccer in our area. Players like Josef Martinez are mesmerizing youth and adults alike with his soccer skills. Soccer is an amazing game that is played worldwide, and has been for centuries. It’s been here a long time, and is continuing to grow in momentum and popularity. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we welcome Atlanta United FC team to our great city of Atlanta.

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we reconstruct your torn ligament of the knee using a tissue graft. We usually use a graft that is harvested from your patellar tendon. You will be able to regain your normal range of motion in your knee after our careful surgeons perform your surgery.

The good news about your ACL injury is that with proper surgery, care and rehabilitation, you will be able to return to the soccer field (or any field or court you’re anxious to get back to playing) stronger than you were before your injury! Call and book your appointment with Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today!

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
