Kobe Bryant is heading back to Germany for a knee procedure, and this time he’s taking center Andrew Bynum with him.
The procedure obviously worked well for Kobe, so he’ll go back to Germany, * Bynum will as well. Full details in new story tomorrow.

The procedure is called Orthokine and it’s a non-invasive procedure. It entails a course of injections of plasma-rich platelets that is designed to stimulate healing in arthritis-affected areas.
Since Kobe had his initial procedure done, he has looked so much healthier on the court, sans the bad wrist, of course. It has seemingly done wonders for his arthritic knee, and he has even referred New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez to Dr. Wehling for the same procedure.
Greg Oden and Gilbert Arenas have also had the procedure done.
The Mamba may have become a bit of a trendsetter when it comes to medical treatment. Hopefully, other athletes will experience the same types of results, and this can prolong careers and even help non-athletes.
