Reconstructing knees is not the same science and art it once was. These guys are coming back as good or better than before. A lot has to do with the surgical techniques and materials. Just as much is related to the rehab. It's not failsafe but most of these athletes are stronger and better balanced than before the injury.
Did you know there are only 5000 Snow Leopards in the wild now and they are confined to Central Asia? However, the effective global population (those likely to reproduce) is less than half that number.
