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.

David Cone had surgery yesterday to repair an aneurysm in his right shoulder, but neither the New York Yankees nor the doctors who performed the operation would predict when he'll pitch again.

"The surgery was performed without disturbing any muscles, nerves or veins in the region," a hospital spokesman said.

You may have seen it performed in real time on ABC's Good Morning America . Or maybe you caught actor Hugh Jackman telling David Letterman about having it. Or you may be among the legions of people who have personally undergone it. It is Mohs micrographic surgery, the preferred treatment for the two most common types of skin cancer: basal cell and squamous cell. Although rarely life-threatening, these tumors can become disfiguring without timely removal, and they are being diagnosed at the staggering clip of more than four million a year.

Richie Hartzel's friend meant no harm during the sleepover last January when he started rat-tailing a towel at the 13-year-old's back. But in that critical fraction of a second when what-ifs become what-nows, Richie turned to look over his shoulder. The tip of the towel snapped into his left eye, detonating in the cornea, the eye's outer layer, and ripping the iris that controls the amount of light that enters the eye. Richie's parents rushed over to drive him to the hospital and found that their son's entire eye had gone horrifyingly black.

I HAD THE Mutter Museum all wrong. And I'd bet a jar of human skin - which is apparently stored somewhere inside the museum and smells like Romano cheese - that I'm not alone. Ever since I moved to Philadelphia, the museum has always been a place that people have insisted was a must-see as they gleefully ticked off a long list of macabre displays: a two-headed baby floating in formaldehyde, the corpse of a woman called the "Soap Lady," diseased kidneys and livers and any number of anatomical medical oddities to make you go ewww . Gee, I thought, where do I sign up?

MONTREAL - Shayne Gostisbehere's surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee could not have gone better, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said. Hextall said it was "only the ACL" that was affected. "Sometimes there are other elements involved, but there was nothing else," Hextall said before Saturday's game in Montreal. "The information was as good as we could have gotten. " Gostisbehere, 21, a heralded defensive prospect who played two games with the Flyers before being sent back to the AHL Phantoms, will probably resume playing in three to three and a half months, Hextall said.
