From her official website:
"Tara Lipinski, the Olympic figure-skating champion, underwent surgery for the same hip injury Rodriguez is suffering - from the same doctor who examined A-Rod this week.
Lipinski was back on the ice in a week, and back in a major event in just a few months, but not without enduring some painful rehab.
"It was a blessing," Lipinski told The Post of the surgery, saying she has been pain-free since. "It changed everything for me."
Lipinski, who took home the gold in 1998, recalled yesterday that she had a badly torn hip labrum and ended up visiting Dr. Marc Philippon."
