From the NY Post:
When Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees picked Dr. Marc Philippon to operate on the superstar’s right hip in March, they did so because they believed the Vail-based surgeon was the best in the business.Apparently, they were right.
When Philippon was done with the March 9 surgery, which repaired a torn labrum, removed an impingement and drained a cyst, the doctor said Rodriguez was looking at another operation after the season was finished. Now, there is a chance Rodriguez can avoid the second operation.
“Eighty percent no; 20 percent yes,” Rodriguez told The Post before sitting out last night’s game against the Orioles at Camden Yards. “But you got to call him.”
A message left at Philippon’s Colorado office early last evening wasn’t immediately returned.
I would rather A-Rod have the surgery and return to the Yankees at full strength. Sure, he’s on track to hit 30 homers this season and the “hybrid” surgery has certainly been successful, but I wonder if not having the second surgery would prolong an issue or create another. Might as well fix it all completely and rest up in the offseason, right?
