Broncos center Matt Paradis undergoes first of two hip surgeries

Broncos center Matt Paradis underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right hip Tuesday and is doing well and recovering in Vail, his agent Brian McLaughlin told The Denver Post. In approximately three weeks, Paradis is expected to return to Vail to undergo the same procedure on his left hip.

“Hey #Broncoscountry surgery went well looking forward to attacking the rehab process and getting back out there!!” Paradis tweeted Wednesday evening.

Dr. Marc Philippon of The Steadman Clinic is performing both surgeries on Paradis.

"He believes Matt will come back as a much better athlete — more agile, more explosive and really be able to utilize his hips going forward,” McLaughlin said. “He really thought it was amazing that Matt had the type of year he had. He knew Matt was a good player, but I don’t think he knew fully the kind of season he had with his hips in those conditions."
