Kennedy Center for the Hip and Knee brings their patients the latest medical technologies and most up-to-the-minute surgical techniques for hip and knee replacement...

Oshkosh, WI (PRWEB) June 19, 2012

Kennedy Center Orthopedic surgeons Drs. Davis Tsai and Darin Leetun offer their patients the most innovative treatment options available for hip and knee injuries. The two experienced physicians, board certified in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons, work together at the Kennedy Center for the Hip and Knee to bring their patients the benefit of the latest medical technologies and most up-to-the-minute surgical techniques for hip and knee replacement along with other orthopedic procedures.

According to Dr. Leetun, "Our priority at the Kennedy Center is to ensure the safe return of our patients to active participation in their sports. We do this by consistently upgrading our knowledge and skills to stay abreast of the newest and best trends in ACL repair."

Two of the most highly respected orthopedic surgeons in Wisconsin, Tsai and Leetun advise their patients of the benefits of using their own tissue for ACL surgery. They explain that ACL repair surgery fails more often when completed using an allograft—particularly in patients younger than 25, who are typically more active in sports and work during their six-month recovery, and also in patients who are overweight.

The Kennedy Center for the Hip and Knee treatment facility, located at Mercy Medical Center, is known worldwide for its innovative treatment of sports-related orthopedic injuries. Drs. Leetun and Tsai use minimally invasive techniques, including arthroscopic ACL surgery, to meet the goal of the Kennedy Sports Medicine program: "to get everyone—from the hard-core athlete to the weekend warrior to the recreational adult—back to the activities they love…"
