In this article, the authors discuss the perspectives of two specialists pertaining to orthopedics in the U.S. One author mentions the existence of multiple graft choices for surgical reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament since no single graft choice demonstrates to be superior. Meanwhile, another author considers the total joint arthroplasty as highly successful procedure in ultra-high molecular weight polythylene after seven years of study.
