Omar Calhoun Had Hip Treatment

UConn guard Omar Calhoun has had two hip surgeries during the offseason but is recovering and is expected to be fully recovered by early August, UConn announced Wednesday.

Omar Calhoun, who averaged 11.1 points a game during his freshman season at Connecticut, had two hip surgeries since the season ended March 9.

UConn announced Wednesday the surgeries were for treatment of femoral acetabular impingement (FAI). The procedure basically shaves bone to alleviate discomfort and maybe avoid future problems. The UConn release said this is a condition that is pretty common for athletes.

Calhou had the procedure on his left hip at the end of March and the procedure on his right hip at the end of April. Recovery time is 3-4 months, and Calhoun should be fully recovered by early August, UConn spokesman Phil Chardis said.
