Woods Will Have Season-Ending Surgery After Open Win (Update3)
By Michael Buteau - June 18, 2008
... The latest knee surgery, the fourth of Woods's career, will force him to miss golf's two remaining major tournaments -- the British Open next month and the PGA Championship in August, where he is the reigning champion. He'll also miss the Ryder Cup matches in September against Europe.
Dr. Jon Hyman, an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine expert in Atlanta, said Woods may need up to six months to fully recover.
``He'll need to rehabilitate his muscles around the knee,'' Hyman, who isn't involved in Woods's care, said in a telephone interview. ``The reconstructive surgery itself is fairly straightforward. It can be done oftentimes in under an hour, but the recovery involves muscular reconditioning and muscular training. That can take many months.'' Full story: Bloomberg News
