"That will be considered at the end of the season. . .The strange thing is I thought after making it through last season, I'd be OK. " Johnston had surgery six weeks into the 1997 season to fuse two vertebrae in the neck.

Flyers forward Mike Knuble will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a small tear in the labrum of his right shoulder. "I had the same procedure done three years ago on my left" shoulder, Knuble said yesterday. "I don't think this tear is as severe as the one I had in my left shoulder. "This was a case of me rehabbing it and if that didn't work, it would be the beginning of June by the time I would have had the surgery. That would be cutting into my training time, and it would be getting too close to the start of the season.

By the time A.A. arrived in my office, she had spent almost a year looking for answers. In November 2012, she was 45 and struggling to lose weight and keep her blood pressure down. What sounds like a common scenario, however, was anything but. A.A. was experiencing fatigue and malaise, and the area around her eyes bruised easily. Another puzzling symptom: She said she was acutely aware of her neck. It wasn't pain, but awareness. She was losing more hair than usual in her brush and had stopped menstruating, and her skin broke open easily.

If you're considering surgery for back pain, a new study suggests you first should try physical therapy, which is both less risky and less costly. The University of Pittsburgh study found that surgery and physical therapy were equally helpful for lumbar spinal stenosis, a common condition in older people that makes walking painful. It is the latest of numerous studies to question whether Americans get too much back surgery. It also raises questions about financial incentives.

Last August, on the next-to-last day of the tryouts for USA Baseball's under-18 national team in Houston, John Aiello's brief pitching stint abruptly went bad. "I threw a curveball and, basically, my elbow popped out," the Germantown Academy standout said. Tests revealed a tear to the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, an injury that required Tommy John surgery. It was performed a month later by Phillies physician Michael Ciccotti at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

PITTSBURGH - Flyers defenseman Luke Schenn will have abdominal surgery on Thursday but will be ready for the start of training camp, general manager Ron Hextall announced Wednesday before the game in Pittsburgh. Hextall said Schenn, who missed the last four games, had an injury similar to that of R.J. Umberger, who recently underwent an abdominal procedure. Umberger also had hip surgery. Schenn does not have a hip problem. The Flyers have a glaring need for a No. 1 defenseman, but because of salary-cap problems, Hextall said that player would have to come from within the organization.

DUNEDIN, Fla. - Mario Hollands is leaning toward having surgery on his left arm, which would likely end the relief pitcher's season. Hollands returned to Philadelphia last weekend to see Michael Ciccotti, the team's doctor. Ciccotti recommended three options for his strained common flexor tendon: surgery, an injection of platelet-rich plasma, or rest. Hollands will visit orthopedic surgeon James Andrews in Alabama this week. "I wanted to help the team this year, I wanted to play," said Hollands, 26. "So that's still in my head because I want to play so bad. " Hollands said this injury feels the same as the one that caused him to miss the final month of last season.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - When your first reaction to reading the MRI results on Mario Hollands is to think of Cliff Lee, you know the news is not good and that the final prognosis will not be a positive one for the second-year reliever. The Phillies announced yesterday morning that an MRI on Hollands' left arm revealed a strain of the common flexor tendon. It's the same injury Lee was diagnosed with earlier this month. While Lee is once again treating it with rest, Hollands, 26, is 10 years younger.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - On each of the last two mornings when Phillies pitchers gathered to play catch, Cliff Lee was absent. The discomfort in his pitching elbow had progressively worsened, so the 36-year-old lefthander weighed his options. Late Monday afternoon, the Phillies announced that Lee will try for a third time to non-surgically rehabilitate the tear in his common flexor tendon. Season-ending surgery, not recommended last summer, was endorsed by doctors after the latest setback.
