The surgeon who performed surgery on Tom Brady's injured left knee, and Brady himself, talk to Sam Farmer for a piece in today's editions of the Los Angeles Times.
Dr. Neal ElAttrache said that Brady has exceeded his expectations with his recovery.
"With regard to his recovery of strength, I've never seen anything quite like it. With an average person, it would have taken probably twice as long to get range of motion and strength back."
Brady also detailed the trust he had in ElAttrache, his friend and occasional golf partner.
"I remember when we came out of the original procedure and five days later things weren't going the way that we hoped, and I think it was his instincts and quick decision-making that got me in there before anything really bad could happen. If you misdiagnose something like that, then you have big problems. It was his judgment and instincts, and then him assuring me that everything was going to be OK. ... Obviously, with how I feel now, he was 100% right in what he did. It's great for me to have so much trust and to know that hopefully nothing ever comes up again but if it does that I have somebody like him in my corner."
