Journal and Courier—Lafayette, Ind.—November 3, 2010

Purdue basketball standout Robbie Hummel will undergo surgery on Nov. 16 in New York to repair the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Dr. David Altchek, an attending orthopedic surgeon and the co-chief in the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, will perform the surgery.

Hummel suffered the season-ending knee surgery Oct. 16 in practice. Dr. Donald Shelbourne, who performed Hummel’s first ACL surgery in March, will oversee his rehab after this surgery.
