My daughter needed ACL reconstruction after a sports related ACL tear. Not only her physical and emotional well-being were a concern but also her career in collegiate and professional sports, present and future. After pondering over several good surgeons that had already evaluated her, we decided for Dr. Guelich. Enthusiastic, energetic, assertive, direct, knowledgeable and with good humor he also was quite personable and caring, answering our many questions with comprehensive explanations about all the alternatives for her surgery, and the pros and cons of each one. However, he also told us emphatically what techniques he would NOT perform in our daughter's case, and which technique he recommended strongly even if we went somewhere else for her surgery. Dr. Guelich tailored his recommendations according to our daughters' sport, age, body strength, present and future career, gender and current available clinical and research data. He emphasized the psychological aspects and mental strength relevant to the entire process, and the pre-op rehabilitation of her thigh for strengthening her leg. He gave us detailed information, step by step, of what to expect before, during and after surgery and throughout the rehabilitation process. Although, there is a strong possibility that she will be ready to compete within four months after her surgery, he did let us know that he would not discharge her before the full six months post-op rehab period. By saying this, he was thinking not about one more collegiate season for her, but about her future, her career and about ensuring her well-being by avoiding the possibility of a re-rupture. Answering to our many questions, for we had researched the subject and the specialists in the area A LOT, he focused us on one key factor beyond sources and quality of the grafts: the ability of the surgeon to give the new ACL the right angle, positioning and attachment, plus the effectiveness of the harvesting. The decision that Dr. Guelich should be our daughters' surgeon just unfolded spontaneously by the time the first meeting was over. The second meeting was an even better experience and a confirmation that this was a done deal.

My son had to have knee surgery. We were lucky to find Dr Guelich. Thoroughly explained every step of the upcoming procedure, very professional yet, very personable. Great follow up and continuing care after the surgery. Would highly recommend him!
