Bonds undergoes surgery on knee

Postby WebHamster » Thu Mar 17, 2005 3:00 pm

Scottsdale, AZ (Sports Network) - San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Thursday, lessening his chances of being ready for Opening Day.

The procedure, which was for a debridement of tears in the medial and lateral menisci, was performed by Dr. Art Ting at the Fremont Surgery Center in Fremont, CA. It was the second operation on the right knee, as Bonds had a minor arthritis cleanup and small meniscus tear repaired on January 31.

There is no timetable for the return of Bonds, who experienced periods of swelling in his knee following an incident when he accidentally banged it on a table at SBC Park on February 4. Despite rest and rehabilitation, the swelling remained, and Bonds returned to the Bay Area to be examined by Ting, who deemed the surgery necessary.

The 40-year-old Bonds secured his seventh National League MVP award last season, hitting .362. He also belted 45 homers and drove in 101 runs despite just 373 official at-bats. That's because he broke his own record by walking 232 times.

He has 703 career homers, trailing only Babe Ruth (714) and Hank Aaron (755).
