Lindsey Vonn, who tore two knee ligaments during a crash at the alpine world championships, underwent successful surgery on her right knee, doctors said Sunday.
"The overall success rate for ACL/MCL surgery is very good," said Bill Sterett, doctor for the US Women's Alpine Ski Team.
"Modern surgical techniques combined with aggressive rehabilitation will help Lindsey make a full recovery.
"She will do everything in her power to return as quickly as possible to competitive skiing."
