Georges St. Pierre underwent successful knee surgery roughly a week ago and now has posted a photo of the first part of his recovery process on his facebook page. The surgery in question was an ACL patellar tendon autograft.
GSP said the following on the photo on Facebook:
First phase of rehab: in my room, putting in some work with the CPM (Continuous Passive Motion) machine.
As a reminder, here's what Dr. Sebastien Simard had to say about the expected recovery for Georges:
I'm expecting a full recovery for Georges within 6-9 months. The success rate for this surgery is above 95 percent. I've been the treating doctor for Georges for five years now and I did two surgeries on him already for elbow endoscopy. His recovery rate is completely off the charts. He has an amazing genetics and he has extraordinary physical capabilities and I know Georges has the discipline and the determination that's gonna allow him to be back to the same level of competition that he was before the injury.
