Al Roker announces he'll undergo hip replacement surgery


(WTHR) – TODAY’s Al Roker is preparing for surgery after a bad hip recently started sending painful reminders it was time for treatment.

“All of a sudden, I started feeling this twinge in my hip — and then my back was acting up," Roker said. "It seems like my hip went fairly quickly."

During Tuesday's show, Roker said he knew it was time to get it taken care of.

"In the last three months, my left hip has been deteriorating," Al said.

His procedure, a type of hip replacement called a hip resurfacing, is scheduled for Wednesday.
