An ACL injury can be devastating. For decades, Boston Children's orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine team have led the way in caring for athletes of all ages with an ACL tear. We pioneered ACL reconstruction techniques tailored to the patient’s age and physical maturity and lead the way in developing new approaches to ACL surgery. We pair our surgical expertise with research-based injury prevention and return-to-play programs, and offer comprehensive psychological support when needed.

We care for athletes from aspiring novices to Olympic competitors. Our multidisciplinary ACL team includes orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine physicians, injury prevention specialists, psychologists and nutritionists, ensuring the best possible care. We share your goal—a healthy and strong return to play. We’re here to answer your questions and to support you and your family every step of the way with fast and coordinated care.
