As scheduled, Alex Rodriguez went under the knife for his damaged left hip today, and according to a release put out by the Yankees, the surgery "went as planned and without complication."

The club said a full recovery would take six months. The Yankees did not provide information about the extent of cartilage damage deep within A-Rod's hip, which Dr. Bryan Kelly, who performed the surgery, said would be key to his prospects for recovery and would not be known until the hip was opened and inspected.

You can read all the details in a news story that will be up on the website shortly.
