Drs. Jimi Cook, Pat Smith, Jim Stannard, Ferris Pfeiffer, Cristi Cook, and Kei Kuroki recently received a grant from Arthrex to study the latest technique for ACL surgery—double bundle reconstruction using suspension fixation. The research team developed a novel all-arthroscopic model in dogs to effectively test this technique for human application, while helping our four-legged patients at the same time. This month (April 2013) the first-ever procedures were successfully performed in dogs, and within this calendar year we will know if this technique will provide a better solution for patients around the world.
COL Researchers Dr. James Stannard and Dr. James Cook were featured on KOMU 8 News on April 2nd, 2015.
