Zac Efron Recovering from Torn ACL Suffered While ‘Shredding the Gnar’

Zac Efron took a bad spill while carving that fresh pow pow, and now he’s on the mend after going under the knife.

The “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” star just revealed he tore his ACL while snowboarding, but says that “all is good” after he opted for immediate surgery. Efron went in for knee surgery at the Kerlan-Jobe Surgery Center in Los Angeles.

It’s unclear where the accident went down, but Efron was just in Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, so maybe he hit the slopes in Park City.

The star was operated on by Dr. Ronald Kvitne, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine. Efron was definitely in good hands, as Dr. Kvitne is also a consultant for the Los Angeles Kings and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Efron promises that he’ll “come back stronger than ever,” and will keep fans updated throughout his recovery.
