Missy Elliot Undergoes Surgery

Missy Elliott postponed numerous appearances after undergoing surgery for a torn left Achilles tendon.

The accident happened while Elliot was rehearsing in Los Angeles for the TV Guide Emmy party that was scheduled to be held five days later.

Elliot recently underwent extensive surgery at a private hospital on Manhattan’s East Side to repair the damage.

“Tearing your Achilles is no joke,” Elliot said in a statement. “I can’t even tell you how much pain I’m in, but I’m happy the surgery went well and I want to thank everyone for their concern.”

The 2 ½ hour procedure was completed successfully and Elliott is now at home recuperating and gearing up for the long recovery process which doctors said would take from 6 – 12 months.

Although she is just at the beginning of the recovery process, Elliott intends to honor her commitment to perform at the Miller Genuine Draft “Flavor to Savor” grand finale at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on October 8.
