Dean Ambrose’s surgery was successful on Tuesday night. The surgery, performed by famed Alabama surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Dugas, took about 40 minutes.
He told WWE.com that Ambrose “tore some of the distal triceps tendon where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon.” Basically, 50 percent of the triceps tendon was torn away from the bone.
Ambrose is already doing physical therapy. As far as his return timetable, it’s unknown how long he will be out of action but this type of injury could keep him out of action for several months. We’ll pass along more information when it becomes available.
