Andrew Bynum Medical Update

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum will undergo arthroscopic surgery on both knees Tuesday (3/19), which will cause him to miss the remainder of the season.

"After many months of rehabilitation and consulting with numerous doctors, Andrew and the doctors treating him determined that this is the best course of action at this point," Sixers General Manager Tony DiLeo said. "We will continue to monitor and evaluate his status moving forward."

The arthroscopic surgery will be performed by Dr. David Altchek of the Hospital of Special Surgery in New York. The primary focus of the procedure is to clean out loose bodies from within the knees in an attempt to alleviate pain and swelling.

The team will provide an update when appropriate following the procedure.
