Dr. Bryan Kelly, the specialist who will perform Alex Rodriguez’s hip surgery, is on a conference call with Yankees beat writers. The team just announced that Rodriguez’s surgery is scheduled for January 16.

Dr. Kelly just said he’s hoping Rodriguez will be back after the All-Star break. The doctor is still uncertain just how much damage has been done to the cartilage in the joint, which is going to be important to determining Rodriguez’s return. The doctor is also concerned about Rodriguez’s right hip. Immediately after the surgery, Rodriguez will naturally compensate by putting more pressure on his right hip, and the doctors want to limit that sort of workload to make sure the previously repaired hip doesn’t suffer a setback.

I’ll try to have more in another post soon. Right now, Dr. Kelly is giving us a ton of detail, most of which is pretty overwhelming. I need a medical degree, stat!
