Lakers' Andrew Bynum has successful surgery

The Los Angeles Times—July 28, 2010

Lakers center Andrew Bynum had successful arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday to repair the meniscus.

Bynum's brother, Corey Thomas, said Bynum will rehabilitate his knee for six to eight weeks.

The Lakers start training camp Sept. 25, which is earlier than usual because they will play exhibition games in London and Barcelona in early October.

The procedure was performed by sports medicine orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Altchek at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

Thomas said the doctor "found nothing surprising."

"He was in good spirits," Thomas said. "He'll be ready to go when the season starts."

Thomas said Bynum plans on returning to Los Angeles in about two days.
