Team ACL

Jeroen van de Camp is an ACL experience expert, not a medical professional.

His goal is to help, inspire and motivate ACL patients with information about this heavy injury. Most important: make sure ACL patients find the best treatment options!

Jeroen has ruptured the ACL on his left knee three times while playing football. In 2003 (22 years old), 2004 and 2009. “Since the moment I’ve re-ruptured my ACL in 2004, the ACL injury has fascinated me. From that moment, I’ve wanted to know everything about the ACL and gathered as much information as possible.”
