Promoting Peak Performance and Overall Well-Being

Comprehensive, Compassionate Care

At Connecticut Children’s Sports Medicine our pediatric sports doctors, physical therapists, and athletic trainers don’t just treat injuries, they use the latest diagnostic techniques, therapies and research to enhance performance, prevent injuries and promote long-term health.

Minimally Invasive BEAR Implant for ACL Tears

Connecticut Children’s is the first in Connecticut to use a breakthrough minimally invasive technology called the BEAR Implant for treatment of ACL tears. Unlike reconstruction, the BEAR ACL repair does not require a second surgical wound site to remove a healthy tendon from another part of the leg, or donor tendon. Instead, the implant acts as a bridge to help ends of the torn ACL heal together. Our surgeon injects a small amount of the patient's blood into the implant and inserts it between the torn ends of the ACL. The combination of the BEAR Implant and blood enables the body to heal the torn ends of the ACL back together while maintaining the ACL’s original attachments to the femur and tibia. As the ACL heals, the BEAR Implant is reabsorbed by the body, usually within eight weeks. Talk to a pediatric sports medicine expert at Connecticut Children’s to find out if BEAR ACL repair is an option for you or your child.
