Dr. Neal ElAttrache and St-Pierre's recovery

Sports Illustrated reports St-Pierre as saying, “Dr. ElAttrache did Tom Brady’s ACL, and he had almost the identical injury to me. Brady came back and was better than ever, so I put my trust in Dr. ElAttrache and I am back 100 percent.”

"ElAttrache, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles, performed reconstructive surgery on Brady’s anterior cruciate ligament and also repaired his medial collateral ligament after the quarterback was injured in the opening game of the 2008 season. Since returning the following year, Brady has led New England to the playoffs and made the Pro Bowl each season. Last February he brought the Patriots right back to where they were just prior to his injury: the Super Bowl."
