Earlier this month, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Erik Stark had the opportunity to learn alongside one of the nation’s leading experts in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions and patellar instability, Dr. Lee Pace of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
With over 15 years of practice in orthopedic surgery, Dr. Pace has undergone international training in Germany by one of the doctors who pioneered the surgical procedure known as a Trochleoplasty. He recently visited California to share his surgical knowledge with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Erik Stark.
Additionally, Dr. Stark collaborated with Dr. Pace in performing an ACL reconstruction using a quad tendon autograft. Reconstruction of the ACL requires harvesting tissue to recreate the new ligament. This tissue can be harvested from either the patient (autograft) or a cadaver (allograft).
