Dr. James Andrews Comments On John Cena’s Elbow Surgery

WWE has updated their coverage on John Cena undergoing surgery on Tuesday to have pieces of bone cartilage removed from his elbow through a scope. Below is an excerpt featuring quotes by Dr. James Andrew:

“He had begun to lose motion in his arm, and it had been locking up,” Andrews said. “I performed an orthoscopic procedure on his elbow and took out a bunch of spurs. Everything went really well.” Andrews described the procedure as “straight-forward” despite Cena’s “big, old arm.”

“Cena’s rehab will start on Monday with trying to improve his range of motion and getting the swelling down,” Andrews explained.

WWE reports Cena is expected out two to three weeks.

    Dr. James Andrew has got to be a very rich man. I mean 9 times out of 10 whenever I see a star had surgery be it WWE,NFL,NBA,MLB or whatever he seems to be the guy doing it.

      You might also be surprised at how much "charity" surgery Dr. Andrews does.

    That doctor is a miracle worker. I'm sure even he lost count as to how many careers he extended. I was caught off guard by Cena needing surgery (he never looks injured or tired). However, I am glad that it was in and out and he'll be back so soon. I recall him having neck surgery and came backstage that day or the day after. The guy is a pure beast. Love him or hate him, I for one am jealous of his healing powers.

  • Chris

    Say what you like about Cena, but to maintain the 'bodybuilder' type physique with a bad elbow, that he's obviously been carrying for a while, you have to give him props…
