Florida State basketball coach Leonard Hamilton undergoes successful Achilles surgery
Florida State head basketball coach Leonard Hamilton underwent successful surgery to repair the ruptured Achilles in his left leg Wednesday.
FSU announced Wednesday night that Drs. Aaron Guyer and Jason Oberste performed the outpatient surgery at the Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic.
Hamilton suffered the injury when he fell off the team bus as FSU prepared to head to the airport the night it officially found out it would be in the NCAA Tournament and flew to the Indianapolis bubble.
Hamilton made light of the surgery and his recovery on his Twitter account.
He dealt with the injury without undergoing surgery while in the bubble. He wore a boot on his left foot and still walked around the FSU bench area as usual, leading the Seminoles to their third straight Sweet 16 appearance.
Per FSU, "Hamilton will begin strengthening the Achilles’ and his rehabilitation exercises as soon as he is able. His physicians expect a complete recovery and do not anticipate any disruption to his postseason activities."
