Tiger Woods recovery could take two years
The U.S. Open win for Tiger could be more costly than originally thought. While he played through the pain and against doctor orders, he still prevailed as the champion back in June. He has missed the rest of the season after knee surgery and Dr. Lanny Johnson thinks it will take Tiger 2 years to fully recover.
Tiger won the U.S. Open hobbling around with one good knee. He is still going to win many tournaments with one and a half good knee. Can't wait to see him back next year. The PGA isn't the same without him.
Dr Lanny L Johnson, a pioneering orthopaedic specialist who invented the tools used in Woods’ knee operation in June, has warned the 32-year-old American not to rush back, or risk suffering long-term damage.
“Other forces will try and hurry Tiger back, but he should take it easy,” Dr Johnson told The Daily Telegraph. “Dr Tom Rosenburg, who has performed his operations, is a great surgeon and if Tiger’s smart, he will listen to what he has to say.
