The Lafayette paper on Sunday had almost two full pages on Purdue basketball star Robbie Hummel covering his ACL injury, resultant surgery, and recovery.

Our Don Shelbourne ’72 is the surgeon who performed the surgery and whose techniques for follow-on therapy are bringing Hummel back to 100%.  Don performs about 130 such surgeries each year – mostly on athletes.

It’s pretty impressive to think that an ACL injury, once a career-ending injury, can be fully repaired and the athlete can go back to a high level of play.  Don Shelbourne has been a leader in this field for many years.
