This unique book fills the void in the existing literature related to the diagnosis and evaluation of pediatric ACL injuries and presents both current and emerging surgical techniques for pediatric ACL reconstruction. Once considered rare, these injuries are on the rise as children are increasingly active and engaged in high-impact sports. Historically, these injuries have been treated with benign neglect, but there is increasing evidence that non-operative treatment approaches can lead to recurrent instability, further injury to the meniscus or cartilage, and eventually joint degeneration.
