Lecture Topics: 

  • Root Tears and Ramp Tears Impact on Rotational Instability

  • Updates on ACL in 2021


Dr Sachin Tapasvi, a leading arthroplasty & arthroscopy surgeons in Pune, India, boasting of fellowships garnered in India and abroad, completed MBBS and M.S. (Ortho) from B.J. Medical College, Pune with gold medals for topping the university in both courses. He then went on to complete his D.N.B., M.N.A.M.S and then A.F.A.O.A (Australia). He was honoured with the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physians and Surgeons of Glasglow (F.R.C.S), in July 2016.

He consults in arthritis, sports medicine, arthroscopy and arthroplasty with premier hospitals. For the quest and spread of true knowledge, he trains four fellows annually in his most sorted after ISAKOS apporved fellowship program, while he himself updates his knowledge and skills - conducting and attending national and international conferences. The premier arthroscopy course, ‘Pune Knee Course’ is his initiative. He is also involved in lot of research activities and has authored many book chapters, articles and research papers.

He has assumed responsibilities in executive membership roles of various prestigious natioanal and internatianal orthopaedic organisations like the ISAKOS, Asia Pacific Knee Society, APOA, Indian Association of Sports Medicine, Indian Arthroscopy Society, Maharashtra Orthopaedic Society etc.

Lecture: Updates on ACL in 2021


The most important shifts in ACL surgery philosophy have been that acute reconstruction is not associated with increased complications and that primary repair of femoral avulsions in selected cases yields good results. Quadriceps autograft use has been steadily rising and extra-articular reconstruction to control pivot shift is now better understood.


Lecture: Root Tears and Ramp Tears Impact on Rotational Instability


Posterolateral root tears occurring in association with acute ACL tears are part of the ‘lateral quartet’ injury pattern. This tear, especially when associated with meniscofemoral ligament injury results in high-grade pivot shift. Medial meniscus ramp lesion also causes pivot instability. Recognizing and repair both these injuries improves rotational knee stability.
