ACL Repair VS ACL Reconstruction
ACL Repair(Preservation First™)
Dr. DiFelice is a pioneer in the innovative ACL repair surgery. After 15 years and hundreds of patients successfully receiving an ACL repair procedure, we can now compare the surgical outcomes to the traditional ACL reconstruction procedure.
The majority of ortho surgeons will ONLY recommend ACL reconstruction to their patients. This is how ACL reconstruction compares to ACL repair.
*Individual results may vary per patient
INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO SURGERY
“Whenever possible, I give the body a chance to heal and chose the least invasive approach to surgery.” Centered on Dr. Gregory DiFelice’s philosophy of “less is more”, his goal is to help your body to heal, rather than to force it to heal. Instead of a “one size fits all” approach to surgery, he will use the latest surgical technologies to provide you with tailored treatments based on your specific injury patterns.
Patient Stories Told by Patients
Left knee meniscotomy
Doctor and staff went above and beyond my expectations.
Wonderful, life changing
I found the whole experience extremely simple and greatly satisfying. Dr. DeFelice answered every question I had and walked my wife and I through the entire process. Every prediction he told us clearly came through and we knew what to expect and what to do. His depth of knowledge and expertise was both comforting and re-assuring. Am pain free and walking/ hiking/ enjoying myself again.
ACL Repair 14 year old gymnast
Dr. DiFelice is awesome! My 14 year old daughter tore her ACL and needed surgery. She is a competitive cheerleader and gymnast, so this was a huge set back for her. He performed a new type of surgery that was less invasive than the traditional surgery. Only a few short days after the surgery, my daughter was moving around with very little pain. She was at 100% strength and range of motion after only 7 weeks, and resumed activities after only 11 weeks!
Hamstring tear with large hematoma
The procedure greatly alleviated the pain. This happened just before Christmas and I greatly Dr. DiFelice efforts to get this surgery done. In one day, evaluation, clearance for other medical issues, surgery that evening. The timeliness of the surgery was important as to delay till after Christmas would have left me in a lot of pain for much longer and delaying to the later date such surgery may not have been useful.
I’m 83 and had a total knee replacement in June 2015.
Dr. DiFelice made me pain free and walking much better in 3 months. He takes time with you and is easy to talk to. He is willing to answer all of your questions and is very friendly when you are with him. His expertise was evident as I recovered without any setbacks. I would recommend him highly and with no reservations.
