2nd ACL surgery (difference in physician opinions)
I have torn the ACL in the same knee twice and am schedule for a second surgery. My doctor has said I should change my lifestyle after the surgery and give up all "cutting" sports. I got a 2nd opinion from another physician who said he could do repair and, with correct rehab, I could play these sports again. I play them recreationally. Why is there such a difference in philosophy between orthopedists?
