Welcome to another "Sports Doc Talk" episode with your hosts, Will Sanchez and renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. Grant Garcia. In this episode, we dive into ACL injuries, surgeries, and biologics. We discuss cutting-edge treatments for ACL injuries, including the concepts of the "fertilized ACL," tightrope fixation, Bridge enhanced ACL repair (BEAR), Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC.) The back-and-forth banter is a bonus or possible distraction.


As athletes increasingly seek faster and more effective recovery methods, these biologically enhanced techniques are at the forefront of sports medicine, promising to transform the healing process. Dr. Garcia breaks down the science and application of PRP and BMAC therapies. He explains how PRP, rich in growth factors, can accelerate healing and reduce inflammation when injected into injured tissues. Similarly, BMAC, concentrated with stem cells and regenerative cells harvested from the patient's own bone marrow, offers significant potential for repairing joint, tendon, and ligament injuries. Will and Dr. Garcia also discuss the innovative BEAR implant and other scaffold technologies that create a bioactive environment for ACL regeneration. Tune in to learn how these advanced treatments pave the way for more natural and effective recovery paths for athletes at all levels.


Don't miss this episode of "Sports Doc Talk" to explore how cutting-edge biological augmentation techniques are revolutionizing ACL repair and recovery whether you're an athlete, a coach, a patient, or someone interested in the latest medical advancements. As a bonus, see how Dr. Garcia tries his best not to let the sun distract him as he speaks.
