Josh Willingham's surgery is a success
Josh Willingham underwent successful arthroscopic surgery today at Washington Hospital Center to clean up damage in his left meniscus. Nationals team doctor Wiemi Douoguih performed the surgery, which shaved down and smoothed ragged edges of cartilage inside Willingham's knee.
Willingham, whose season is over, should be able to complete rehab in four to six weeks. He returned from the same injury to his right knee while in the minor leagues. The procedure was relatively minor enough that Willingham may join teammates at Nationals Park tonight.
