Dr. Neal ElAttrache's Role in Dominick Cruz's return
In an in-depth look at UFC bantamweight champ, Dominick Cruz's, athletic journey, Bleacher Report mentions Dr. Neal ElAttrache when discussing Cruz's second and third ACL reconstruction surgeries.
Editor Frank Curreri writes, "Immediately following that second ACL snap in December, Del Fierro glimpsed the hellstorm and dejection in Cruz's eyes and thought, 'OK, now he's done.'
"Desperate and devastated, Cruz enlisted a new doctor to perform the second ACL reconstruction, this time the patellar tendon graft. He chose the most trusted and precise hands he could find: Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the Los Angeles orthopedic surgeon who has repaired a who's who of A-list clients such as Kobe Bryant, Tom Brady, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who once said to the Los Angeles Times of ElAttrache, 'He can fix what others say is unfixable.'"
