Lindsay Vonn Has Operation to Repair Shredded Knee Ligaments
The surgeon who operated on Lindsey Vonn's right knee was "optimistic for a full recovery" after she shredded two ligaments during a crash last week at the world championships.
Dr. Bill Sterett a physician for the U.S. Ski Team performed the procedure on the four-time overall World Cup champion Sunday morning in Vail Colo. In a release issued by the ski team Sterett said the surgery went well and that she was resting comfortably.
"The overall success rate for ACL/MCL surgery is very good. Modern surgical techniques combined with aggressive rehabilitation will help Lindsey make a full recovery" said Sterett who's also a surgeon at Vail-Summit Orthopaedics. "She will do everything in her power to return as quickly as possible to competitive skiing."
