Woods Has Reconstructive Surgery on Left Knee

Tiger Woods has undergone reconstructive surgery on his left knee in Utah to repair a torn ligament, and doctors say it's "highly unlikely" there will be any long-term effects.

It's the second time in 10 weeks Woods had surgery on his knee, this time on his anterior cruciate ligament.

"We were confident going into this surgery, and I am pleased with the results," Dr. Thomas D. Rosenberg said Tuesday in a statement released by IMG, Woods' management company.

"There were no surprises during the procedure, and as we have said, with the proper rehabilitation and training, it is highly unlikely that Mr. Woods will have any long-term effects as it relates to his career."
