Dear Dr. Marzo, My daughter tore her ACL ski racing. The surgery went really well and her rehab went well too. She went back to ski racing for the 2014/2015 ski season. Her ACL was strong, but getting back to where she left off was very difficult. There was still some pain and soreness in her knee and she was still getting her functional strength back. I am sure it is no surprise to you that it is a long rehab process. By the end of that season, she was skiing much better, but still working her way back. Last ski season (2015/2016) she was back 100%. She qualified for the New York State team from WNY and went on to win the New York State Championship for her age group in Super G. She also finished 7th in Giant Slalom and 4th in Slalom. She advanced to the Eastern Championships in Sunday River, Maine. Her knee is strong and she is doing great. She can’t wait to ski race again this season. She is also playing lacrosse and rowing. This photo was taken at the New York State Championships this past season. My daughter is a strong and athletic high school freshman now and able to do all the sports and activities she loves. My wife, my daughter and I wanted to thank you again for taking care of her and for doing such a good job on her surgery.
