Urlacher: Dr. Cole Explains The Magic & Pixie Dust Procedure
The video link below is by Dr. Cole (the doctor who performed the surgery on D. Rose). I wish Urlacher had just scoped the knee in January.
Instead he did the experimental "procedure" that was about as effective as rubbing the knee with a dead monkey's foot for voodoo purposes :smile:

Dr. Cole explains Urlacher's procedure
As an Cartilage Restoration Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Brian Cole knows a thing or two about rehabbing serious injuries.
"All of us are looking at the setting of injury for magic or pixie dust for the injury to go away or to make it heal faster," Dr. Cole said. "And that's a commendable effort and there actually are things we can do to speed up the process."
Which is where Brian Urlacher comes in.
Urlacher reportedly underwent a groundbreaking procedure in Germany to help his left knee heal faster. Dr. Cole explains the scientific details of the procedure and what it could mean for the future for the anchor of the Bears defense.
It's interesting stuff. I understood about half the words Dr. Cole said. But hey, I'm not that smart, so you'll probably fare better.
This isn't the first time we have seen Dr. Cole, as he was the surgeon on the most prolific knee injury Chicago has ever seen -- Derrick Rose's torn ACL this spring.
Just like Dr. James Andrews became famous as the go-to surgeon for MLB pitchers, Dr. Cole is becoming the official spokesman for Chicago athletes' knee injuries.
Check out the full video above for more details on Urlacher's procedure. It's also worth noting that Alex Rodriguez and Kobe Bryant received a similar procedure on their knees, and both went on to have great seasons. (A-Rod is currently sidelined, but with an injured hand, not knee)
