Surrey batsman Michael Brown has undergone elbow surgery, just eight weeks after an operation to mend a damaged shoulder.
He missed the entire 2010 season due to injury but has already started rehabilitation work on his right shoulder and will now start working his wa back to fitness following surgery on his left elbow.
“2010 was an incredibly frustrating year with the injuries that I have suffered due to technical changes that I made," Brown told Surrey's official website (www.britoval.com).
"To say I have missed playing cricket is the understatement of year and I am desperate to be back playing as soon as possible – contributing to helping Surrey win matches in 2011.”
Surrey Professional Cricket Manager Chris Adams added: “Michael was a big loss last season and between us we made the decision for him to have the necessary surgery as early as possible this autumn. Hopefully, this will give him plenty of time to complete a full rehabilitation process and get a bat back in his hands well ahead of the start of next season.
“2010 has been a very hard time for him and I would like to pay tribute to the professionalism Michael has shown throughout his injury and rehabilitation process.”
