Tiger Woods is out of surgery and will be out of action for two to three weeks after surgery to remove a bone in his jaw.
Woods was at the dentist today, but was not seen by Dr. William Reimer.
The operation was performed by Drs.
Gary DeSimone and John E. DeSimones at Dr. Reimer’s office at the University of Wisconsin Hospital, according to a release from the Wisconsin Health Department.
It’s a procedure Woods will undergo for the first time after missing three months of the 2014-15 season due to the bone surgery.
Wood’s injury is the second major surgery Woods has had since being traded from the Pittsburgh Pirates in June.
He was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in July 2016, which required surgery to clear it, and the procedure was performed on Dec. 18, 2015.
That same month, Woods was diagnosed by Dr Michael R. Katz, who said the procedure has been “very successful.”
Woods missed nine games during his second stint with the Pirates.
In addition to surgery to his jaw, Woods had another procedure to remove part of his tongue, teeth and nasal passages.
The Wisconsin Medical Center says it is working on getting the rest of his jaw removed.
