With the frequency of ACL injuries occurring earlier and earlier for athletes, Hospital for Special Surgery Westchester is hosting a special program for parents to help avoid the pitfalls of the devastating injury.

HSS Westchester announced it will be hosting a special program on ACL injuries in youth athletes, beginning at 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 22 at the Outpatient Center on Westchester Avenue in White Plains.

Hosting the program will be three experts, including Andrew Pearle, an Orthopedic Surgeon at the HSS Hospital for Special Surgery; Laurey Lou, a physical therapist with the HSS Rehabilitation and Sports Performance Center and Jimmy Russomano, the program manager of HSS Sports Safety.

Among the topics to be addressed during the hour-long program include:

  • ACL injury screening;
  • ACL injury education programs for coaches, parents and athletes;
  • ACL injury treatment and rehabilitation options.

“ACL injuries are among the most common and devastating injuries a young athlete may sustain,” the experts said. “They are particularly prevalent in sports that involve quick changes in speed or direction, such as soccer or lacrosse; or sports that require frequent jumping and landing, such as basketball or volleyball.”

Those interested in registering for the program can do so online , or by calling Pamela Villagomez at (203) 705-2956 or emailing villagomezp@hss.edu.
