Neal ElAttrache, MD, performed knee surgery on Jonah Williams, an offensive tackle for the Cincinnati Bengals in the National Football League.
The surgery is an attempt to fix a dislocated kneecap, which prevented Mr. Williams from playing in the final two games of the season. Mr. Williams also had another kneecap dislocation earlier in the season.
Dr. ElAttrache is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles. He also serves as head team physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Rams and is an orthopedic consultant for the Los Angeles Kings, Los Angeles Lakers and Anaheim Ducks.
Mr. Williams is expected to be fully recovered by June with the hope that this surgery will prevent any future dislocations.
