The OJSM Hot Corner

Aug 24, 2022

This week, host Anthony Yu (@Anthony_YuMD) welcomes Dr. Bert Mandelbaum from the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute (@MandelbaumMD) and Dr. Timothy McAdams from Stanford to discuss the risk of ACL rupture in soccer & football on turf versus grass. Published in May’s OJSM (@OJSM_SportsMed) courtesy of the Abigail Wexner Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, the study “Epidemiological Comparison of ACL injuries on different playing surfaces in high school football and soccer” examined this very topic. Dr. McAdams, head team physician of the San Francisco 49ers, and Dr. Mandelbaum, team physician for the LA Galaxy with long-standing ties with Major League Soccer and USA Soccer, discuss this study and share their unique insights on this controversial subject.
