Pau Gasol to Undergo Procedure on Both Knees

According to Pau Gasol and the Los Angeles Lakers, the big fella will go under the knife today for both his knees: “Lakers forward Pau Gasol, who has been suffering from tendonosis in both knees, will undergo a FAST Technique procedure (Thursday). The procedure uses a probe inserted into the knee which directs ultrasonic energy to eliminate scar tissue without damaging healthy tissue.”

    The treatment professional athletes get is incredible, I wonder how much treatment like this costs.

    As long as this rejuvenates him, I’ll be happy. A healthy Pau offers the team MUCH more than any 2 role players LAL can snag from trading him.

    this is a very very very minor surgery. he will probably be healthy by August at the latest.
