Georges St. Pierre Underwent Successful Knee Surgery Today

Today was the big day for Georges St. Pierre’s knee surgery.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who is considered one of the best orthopedic surgeons in sports medicine, performed a complete reconstruction of GSP’s ACL and repaired damage in his meniscus at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles earlier today. According to GSP, the doctor said the operation couldn’t have gone better.

Good news! The surgery (ACL patellar tendon autograft reconstruction) was a total success! Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed the operation, said it could not have gone better. Ligament is super strong. Thank you for all the messages of support- gave me a lift!

St. Pierre’s recovery time is expected to be between 6-10 months depending on how he responds to rehab, so if all goes well, we may see him back in the Octagon late next year.
