Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn had a minor hip procedure done today in Nashville by Dr. Thomas Byrd.

Coburn is expected to be ready by training camp.

Byrd also performed hip surgery in recent weeks on Simon Gagne and Randy Jones, both of whom will be ready for camp.

Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn underwent arthroscopic surgery yesterday to remove a small, bony impingement in his left hip, general manager Paul Holmgren said.

Surgeon Thomas Byrd performed the procedure in Nashville. Coburn's rehabilitation is expected to take six to eight weeks, the Flyers said.

Whaaaat? Kinda nuts. I never took the phrase "arthroscopic surgery" lightly, but if they say he'll be ready by camp I guess he'll be ready by camp.

Isn't that where they just make tiny cuts and go in there with robots and cameras and ****? So many surgeries happen these days that I don't even think anything of it anymore.

I'm fairly sure that's what it is

Yea, I had arthro on my knee... it really isn't that big of a deal, like a 1-2 week recovery period. They pretty much just go in and take out whatever is wrong.

It depends on what kind of surgery is done. I had a bit of torn meniscus cleaned up on my left knee; I only missed a few days of work and was back running in a few weeks. I had a tendon shortened on the right knee plus the meniscus trimming and I was in an immobilizer for one month and out of work for two months and I work a desk job. Both surgeries were arthroscopic.

I hope Coby gets better before training camp.

Ever since I was little I thought it was a bigger procedure because I remember it taking Mankind out of service for a while. Or maybe I'm thinking of something else...but I thought, wrong, it seems, that they basically went in there and scooped just about your whole knee in fixing it.

But yeah, it was Mankind who was injured years ago and I think had this procedure. Maybe the time period just seemed longer cause I was younger.

It was Bret Hart. They actually broadcasted the surgery on Monday Night RAW.

Scopes aren't really a distinct procedure. They are just a less invasive way of performing any given surgery. They use tiny little entry points rather than opening up a big hole. It is less taxing on your body and you don't end up with such large scars or healing time for the wound itself. If the procedure is rather simple, recovery may be short. You can still have a scope procedure that will come with a long recovery time. It depends more upon the nature of the injury and what part of your body is being operated on more than on whether it's a scope or open procedure.

He definitely looked like he had taken a step backward. Maybe that was it.

this is corret. "scoping" is really just the new way of doing surgery where it's NOT necessary to open the entire area up. I had Arthroscopic surgery when they did my ACL replacement. I was off the knee for 6 weeks and then 8 weeks of rehab. They make one small cut so they can insert a small fiber optic camera into the area so they can see inside the knee/hip for the proceedure. They make other cuts as needed for the procedure including at least 1 for the small lazer knife to go in and "cut" away the trouble spots. For me I had a total of 4 small cuts, 2 were for where they puts the screws in, 1 for the "knife" and one for the camera. Thus, even something like an ACL replacement which is no small proceedure is usually do as an Arthroscopic proceedure now. I know people who had basically what Coburn just did and it's basically just a "scraping" of the bone and it's a minor proceedure. He'll probably have some selling and tenderness in this hip for a week or 2 and then he can begin working the muscles again. He probably has 2 or 3 small cuts, 1 for the camera, 1 for the lazer and they had to feed in a tube for suction too, sometimes they use the same cut that they feed the lazer through and sometimes they use one for the suction alone. It was most likely done as an out patient proceedure and he walked out of the facility (mr brother did when he had the cartiledge scoped on his knee 15 years ago).

Damn, I had my ACL replaced and only missed 1 day of work. Had it done on a friday, was out of the hospitol on Sunday and back at work on Monday. I was on crutches and a brace for 6 weeks and then 8 weeks of rehab but damn, I'd go crazy basically bedridden that long.

I don't doubt this happening, but I can only remember as far back to Mankind.
