Freddie H. Fu, MD, Honored for Decades of ACL Research

Terry Stanton

To read a summary of the research conducted by Freddie H. Fu, MD, of the University of Pittsburgh, is to read a modern history of advances in techniques and concepts to repair a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). His paper detailing the results of his three decades of research in this field is the recipient of the 2014 Kappa Delta Elizabeth Winston Lanier Award.

The work done by Dr. Fu and his team helped shape the evolution of ACL reconstruction, shifting it from a standardized technique that “neglected the anatomy of the patient” and failed to place the femoral and tibial tunnels within the native ACL insertion sites to one that more faithfully restores the natural anatomy of the ACL structure.
