Hummel surgery scheduled

Forward Robbie Hummel will have surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on Nov. 16 in New York, the school said in a release.

Hummel re-tore the ligament in his knee during practice on Oct. 16. His second surgery won't be performed by team orthopedic surgeon Dr. K. Donald Shelbourne, who did the first surgery.

Hummel's surgery will be done by Dr. David Altchek, who serves as the medical director for the New York Mets and as a medical consultant for the NBA.

Though the school's release didn't specify, it's likely Hummel's second surgery will only be on his injured knee. Shelbourne used Hummel's left knee as a graft knee, and it was that knee that was still giving him pain in October.

Shelbourne was the one who recommended Altchek.
