New Jersey practice becomes 1st in county to debut BEAR implant


Freehold, N.J.-based Advanced Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute has become the first practice in Monmouth County to debut the BEAR implant for treating ACL tears. 

The first procedure was completed by surgeons Michael Greller, MD, and Garret Sobol, MD, who specialize in sports medicine. 

The BEAR implant allows physicians to use a patient's own blood to repair a torn ACL, making it the first medical advancement that allows a body to heal its own ACL. 

The implant is often associated with less blood loss, faster recovery times and higher patient satisfaction, according to a Feb. 17 press release.
