Question - Torn ACL (hockey goaltender)

by Robin

Hello I just happend to find your site via google. Thanks for all the info.

My 17 year old daughter has a torn acl (MRI inconclusive if partially torn or fully torn). She is a goaltender for her high school hockey team and will miss the season.

We live in a rural area where we have a surgeon that visits here about once a month. Would she be better going to a sports clinic to have this done or is ACL reconstruction done the same way by most surgeons, it would be nice to have a surgeon with knowledge of goaltending? Our goal is to have support and guidance with hopes that she can return to the ice next season. Do you know of or have a rehabilition program post op that will get her to her goal?
