Sport Injuries Information
« on: July 19, 2007, 04:38:34 PM »
I've searched but can't find much, but is there a website etc on the web that details sporting injuries, for example what injury did Micheal Vaughan do that was career threatening only info i can find is was it was a "Knee Injury" and did Micheal Owen only injure his ACL etc etc it would be interesting to find out what exactly they did
Any information would be great
Thanks in advance

Due to HIPPA that will be next to impossible to find on American Athletes.
If I knew I'd be like this now, I'd do it all again.
1998- Lf ACL replace (failed)
1998- Lf ACL replace (worked)
1998- Rt LR
1999- Rt Scope
2000- Rt ACL replace
2001- Rt hardware replace
2002- Rt Scar Tissue Removal
2005- Rt Pattella Scraped
2009- Rt clean-out the mess
To Come: 2 Replace

Owen tore his ACL but I believe he also damaged cartilage at the same time.
I'm pretty sure Dr Steadman first repaired the cartilage then in a 2nd operation repaired his ACL using cadavor tendons (allograph).

If you google him there are loads of articles.

Sport hurts....
so go hard, or go home.
