Dr. Neal ElAttrache's technique and its role in Bryant's recovery
The Bleacher Report discusses Kobe Bryant’s return to the Los Angeles Lakers after his Achilles tendon surgery, citing the surgical technique used by Dr. Neal ElAttrache as a key “technical change” that may be contributing to a quick recovery.
Editor Will Carroll writes, "One key is a technical change in how Kobe's Achilles tendon was reconstructed.
"Dr. Neal ElAttrache is one of the top surgeons working in sports today, with successes ranging from Tom Brady's knee to Zack Greinke's collarbone. ElAttrache's April surgery was immediately hailed as successful, but there has been a great deal of surprise at how quickly Bryant has returned to function."
