Patient Stories

Hirsch Twins

Hirsch Twins - ACL Reconstruction of the Knee

They may play different sports, but the Hirsch twins are, indeed, mirrors of each other. Active in basketball, softball and soccer for much of their childhood, Jennifer and Alayna Hirsch have undergone knee surgeries to treat ligament tears. Now, after some well-spent time helping each other recover and prepare for active sports seasons, both are in their senior year at Millikin University in Decatur, IL.
