SHAWN ESTRADA UNDERGOES SURGERY ON
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 21
Los Angeles, CA (January 19, 2009) - It was recently learned that 2008 US Olympian Shawn Estrada will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder this Wednesday, January 21, 2009 in Los Angeles. Dr. Douglas E. Garland of the Southern California Center for Sports Medicine will perform the surgery for what is described as a decompression of the subacromial space. Dr. Garland expects the operation to be a complete success and that Estrada should be able to resume training within ninety days after the procedure.
Estrada, who was scheduled to fight on January 24 in Minnesota and again on February 6 as the opening bout on Showtimeâ€™s ShoBox series at the Tachi Palace, will undergo rehab at Southern California Center for Sports Medicine.
Estrada is scheduled to return to the ring in April 2009. “I've been through a lot in my life in a very short period and this is just another one of life's lessons and obstacles,” stated Shawn. “I know how to deal with it mentally and physically and because of that I will come back stronger than ever. By the time I get back into the ring, I will definitely be ready to wreak havoc again!”
