[intro]Quarterback Jay Fiedler had arthroscopic surgery to repair torn cartilage on his left hip Saturday, and his recovery likely will cause him to miss the beginning of training camp this month.

The surgery is similar to the procedure Fiedler had on Aug. 3, 2000 on his right hip. After that procedure Fiedler missed the first three exhibition games but started the exhibition finale approximately three weeks later. He hasn't had any problems from his right hip since that time.[/intro]

The Dolphins expect Fiedler to make a full recovery from Saturday's surgery. He'll be evaluated sometime around July 26, when rookies and selected veterans report for training camp, and a more definitive return date will be set.

The surgery was performed at Holy Cross Hospital by Dr. Marc Philippon, who performed Fiedler's surgery in 2000. Philippon, one of the world's leaders in this type of surgery, performed a similar procedure on pro golfer Greg Norman two years ago.
