Comprehensive, relevant and insightful conversations about health and medicine happen here… on MedStar Health DocTalk. Join us for real conversations with physician experts from around the largest healthcare system in the Maryland-DC region.

A twisted knee, swelling, and the telltale “pop.” Is it an ACL tear? DocTalk host Mike Schuh talks with sports medicine orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Cohen from MedStar Orthopaedic Institute about the anterior cruciate ligament, how it’s arthroscopically repaired, and what can be expected during recovery. If you’re an athlete who frequently pivots, cuts, twists, or stops suddenly, learn more about the resulting strain on your ligaments and how ACL tears can be prevented as Mike unravels the complexity of ACL surgery and its success rates. Dr. Cohen sees patients in Bel Air, Timonium, and at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
