Best Seattle doctor for ACL surgery? : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I currently need to have ACL reconstruction surgery. I tore the ACL in my left knee 4 years ago in a skiing accident. It was soon repaired using a piece of my knee cap. I tore it again approx. 6mo. after surgery doing a deep sqaut. I had surgery again a week later in which they took out a peice of my hamstring. This time my doctor said "well if this one doesn't hold we'll put a graft in for you." Approx. 6mo. later, a small jolt also popped that ACL. I went back to the Doctor to verify the need for surgery again, but was not ready at that point to go through it all over again for the third time. After about 2 1/2 years it has sort of started bugging me again and I do not want to go back to the same doctor. Instead I would like to go to whoever is considered the best in the Seattle area (if possible). Can anyone help?
