Oxygenation Study Helps Ballet Dancer Recover from ACL Surgery
March 27, 2023
Continually looking for ways to improve recovery in athletes at all levels, James Voos, MD, UH Chair of Orthopedics and Sports Medicine teamed with Benjamin Geletka, PT, DPT, and researchers to look at ACL injuries from inside the patient's body instead of just external observation techniques. Wearable technology allows clinicians to assess how oxygen returns to the muscle after surgery. For Cleveland Ballet company artist Diego Castillo, this meant a personalized plan to get him back to his high level of performance and ready to perform in The Nutcracker.
