The New York Rangers announced today that right wing Pavel Bure underwent successful arthroscopic surgery this morning to repair a posterior tear of the medial meniscus in his right knee. The procedure was performed by team physician Dr. Andrew Feldman at St. Vincent’s Hospital. The rehabilitation process for Bure is expected to last two weeks.
“The procedure performed on Pavel this morning went extremely well,” stated Dr. Feldman. “He will begin his rehabilitation program immediately and we are extremely optimistic that he will return to full form.”
Bure sustained the injury on Tuesday, September 24, against the New Jersey Devils at Madison Square Garden. An MRI yesterday revealed the nature of the injury, but showed no damage to either the anterior cruciate ligament or the medial collateral ligament.
