A-Rod will undergo surgery on his left hip to repair a labral tear, the same procedure he had on his right hip in March 2009.
The surgery will take place in January, as the doctor wants A-Rod to strengthen the hip before undergoing the operation. Dr. Bryan Kelly from Hospital for Special Surgery will perform the surgery.
The surgery will take place in January, as the doctor wants A-Rod to strengthen the hip for 4-6 weeks before undergoing the operation.
A few weeks ago, A-Rod began feeling discomfort in his left hip, which another MRI revealed to be a labral tear.
A-Rod returned to the Yankees’ lineup two months after his 2009 hip surgery to repair a torn labrum, though the then-34-year-old had already been in spring training for a month at the time of that procedure.
