Success - Article sent! close

The White Sox have reported that pitcher John Danks underwent successful surgery Monday morning at Rush University Medical Center on his rotator cuff and biceps in his left shoulder.

Here is the team's official release:

The surgery, which was needed to repair a capsular tear and minor debridements, revealed a normal labrum. The arthroscopic procedure was performed by a team of surgeons from Midwest Orthopedics at Rush, led by Dr. Anthony Romeo and Dr. Greg Nicholson with assistance from Dr. Charles-Bush Joseph and Dr. Nik Verma.

Danks will be immobilized in a sling for four weeks. He is expected to be fully able by the start of 2013 spring training, where he will be on a regular schedule.
