Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Steve Bono torn one achilles had surgery and a lengthy rehab process, only to sustain another Achilles tear to the other leg the following year. After that injury Bono, at the suggestion of former 49ers great Joe Montana, opted for PRP treatment. This was successful according to Bono.
