Dara’s Story

Dara Torres is not your average mom: she has won 12 Olympic medals, including 4 gold. Along the way, the wear and tear of training and competitive swimming has taken its toll. With her chronic knee pain, Dara feared her ability to train and exercise might be coming to an end. What's worse, she feared she wouldn't be able to keep up with her young daughter.

Was it time for Dara to throw in the towel? Not at all. Dara took on knee pain like a champion, researching her condition and treatment options with the same diligence she used in training.

Dara and her surgeon chose MACI.

MACI uses your own cartilage cells to repair your damage, relieving your pain and restoring your ability to be active.

And the results? Well, Dara's well on her way to making a comeback in and out of the water.
