Hornets Owner George Shinn underwent successful surgery today to remove his prostate and will begin immediate rehab.  Shinn was diagnosed with prostate cancer in early November and has been committed to living a healthy lifestyle and remaining positive.  The surgery removed 100 percent of the cancer, and Shinn is expected to make a full recovery. Shinn will complete most of his rehab out of town and looks forward to returning to his regular work routine soon.

The surgery was completed by Dr. Patrick Walsh at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institution in Baltimore.

“Following today’s successful surgery to completely remove the cancer, Mr. Shinn will begin the process to a full and speedy recovery and is anxious to return to the Hive to watch his team play and enjoy the recent success the team is experiencing,” said Hornets Team Spokesman Harold Kaufman.  “With the support of his immediate and extended Hornets family, Mr. Shinn is an example of how positive thinking and the power of prayer can serve you in your own time of need.  He will conduct the majority of his rehab out of town for the next few weeks, but looks forward to thanking everyone in person for their well wishes and prayers.”
