When Aaron Rodgers tore his ACL in the week 1 game against the Bills, many thought this was the end of his career. A complex injury like this at such an advanced age was surely horrific for football fans around the world. But, in stepped Dr. Neal ElAttrache, the super surgeon, and things were seemingly a bit brighter for the QB.

Dr. ElAttrache has applied his skills to many athletes, including Aaron Rodgers, and celebrities throughout the years. And all of them haven’t shied away from singing his praises. He is a top sports medicine specialist; his work begins from diagnosis to surgery and continues to the entire rehabilitation and recovery process. No wonder he has worked his magic on several occasions for athletes just this year.
