WWE Hall of Famer and former WWWF Champion Bruno Sammartino underwent a back operation this past week. The operation was done in Pittsburgh and he had been in the hospital for about a month.
Sammartino was operated by Dr. Joseph Maroon's team. Maroon is the head of WWE medical and has been Sammartino's personal physician for years. Maroon also headed Sammartino's lumbar laminectomy back in 2001 after different doctors had told him that they could not help him. Sammartino credited Maroon for his work allowing him to walk without pain and numbness in his legs.
The Wrestling Observer website notes that Sammartino is now out of the hospital and in great spirits.
