Dr. Paul Norio Morton, nicknamed “The Robot Doc,” for his advances in robotic-assisted knee and hip replacement surgery, is constantly finding new ways to take his practice to the next level. On today’s Living 808 show he discusses the use of BEAR.
Dr. Morton is on the cutting edge of a new technology implant to heal ACL tears, one of the most frequent knee injuries in America.BEAR® Implant is a new technology that helps heal ACL tears, as opposed to the current standard of care, reconstruction. This process involves replacing the ACL with a graft. Approximately 400,000 people injure their ACL in America every year, and since these types of tears cannot heal on their own, BEAR® Implant provides patients with a much-needed solution.
