Suns' Amare Stoudemire undergoes successful knee surgery
October 2, 2007
PHOENIX (AP) -- Phoenix Suns center Amare Stoudemire underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Tuesday.
Team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Carter performed the surgery at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital. As expected, a loose particle that caused inflamation was removed from Stoudemire's right knee.
The two-time All-Star is expected to resume basketball activities in two to three weeks. The Suns opened training camp on Tuesday in Tucson.
Stoudemire had microfracture surgery on his left knee two years ago, forcing him to miss nearly all of the 2005-06 season.
