Flyers forward Turner Stevenson underwent successful hip surgery on Tuesday, October 18 to repair a torn labrum. He is expected to be back on the ice in eight weeks, according to Flyers Strength and Conditioning Coach, Jim McCrossin.
"Turner had successful surgery preformed on his right hip by Dr. Thomas Byrd in Nashville," said McCrossin. "What they found, was that it was just the labrum that was torn. So, Dr. Byrd repaired the labrum. Dr. Byrd was pleasantly surprised, so we're looking at a time lost for Turner of about eight weeks. The surgery took about two hours. The doctors said he did very, very well."
