DiPietro undergoes hip surgery
BY GREG LOGAN

May 3, 2007, 3:43 PM EDT

Even before he suffered two concussions in a 12-day span during March, Islanders goaltender Rick DiPietro was playing hurt for the final two months or so of the regular season. Earlier this week, DiPietro underwent successful arthroscopic surgery to repair a labral tear of his left hip.

For the next two weeks, DiPietro will be on crutches, and he is required to rest for the next four to six weeks. But the franchise goaltender is expected to make a complete recovery long before training camp opens in mid-September as he prepares for the second season of his 15-year contract.

The surgery was performed on Monday at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic in Vail, Colorado by Dr. Marc Philippon, a well-known hip specialist. Philippon is a consultant to teams in the NHL, NFL, NBA and MLB and has treated many professional golfers. His clients have included Mario Lemieux, golfer Greg Norman and running back Priest Holmes.

DiPietro's resulted from a chronic condition rather than a specific incident and was one of the reasons he sometimes did not take part in optional morning skates on game days.

"Not that anyone needed more proof that he's a battler, but Rick gutted it out with this injury down the stretch and in the playoffs," Islanders general manager Garth Snow said in a statement. "We're happy to get a very positive report from Dr. Philippon and to know our No. 1 goaltender will be completely ready well before the start of training camp."

Despite being sidelined for a total of three weeks by concussions, DiPietro still appeared in 62 games last season. He compiled a record of 32-19-9 with a 2.58 goals-against average, a .919 save percentage and five shutouts.

Hmmm...so general body soreness does actually mean something specific? Who woulda thunk it?

Dr.Philippon used to be based in Pittsburgh.The same doctor performed two hip surgeries(a torn labrum and a birth defect)on Rangers prospect Mike Sauer.If Mats Sundin needs hip surgery,he is going to go to Phillipon in Colorado

I am surprised it took this long after the season for the team to release the injury info. We knew about Smyth's MCL the next day.

.

Is nobody concerned about this?

He sustained a concussion this year which we all know is a re-occuring injury

He now had surgery on his hip which for a skater isn't so bad, but for a goalie that could be a real real problem for him going forward.

Not looking to overstate the injury, but it has to be concerning that the 2 injuries he's suffered are ones that could potentially hamper his career.

The team probably wanted to know how the surgery would go first.

Absolutely. Personally, I'm hoping that it is no big deal but have no idea if it is or not.

Yes and no to be honest. I think i am leaning towards NO. I am worried but he is a young player so.
