With all the discussion about VVD recovery thought I would pass on some info that could be game changing for future acl recovery and return to sport.
A new bridge-enhanced acl repair (BEAR) procedure has been approved by the US FDA. This procedure allows for the acl to repair itself without the need for a graft. Early evidence shows enhanced strength earlier in recovery that could promote earlier return to sport. Also the the bridge is naturally reabsorbed into the body after 8 weeks. This could potentially reduce recovery times by months.

Thanks for the info Greggers. As I am on a very long waiting list for ACL reconstruction surgery this is good news. 👍🏻.

Thanks Greggers. What would be the very earliest VVD could be back is all went perfectly. Thanks.

It’s unlikely he had this surgery so 6 months bare minimum. 9 months from injury more realistic but it could be a little less. Pressures of performance, league position and potential to win anything may influence accelerating comeback, but not by much more than medical team are happy with.

If he has had this surgery, return potentially could be.

Very interesting thanks. What are your thoughts on the Gomez injury? It appears worse.

Gomez injury to me is more concerning. The fact it is a contractile structure (a primary one that transmits force to straighten the knee- so effectively the kicking action) that will require significant stresses through it to achieve return to action means rehab will have to be very cautious. He can certainly achieve it but I would imagine a lengthier recovery than VVD.
