What is WRONG with people?  If it's surgery or an operation, why not say so instead of using a nebulous Yank euphemism like "procedure"?!!!  Grrr!  furious   For God's sake, call a spade a spade or even, preferably, a bloody shovel!   That said, doesn't soften the blow or make the news any more palatable.  cry

Sounds like a facet joint issue to me, and there are minimally invasive 'procedures' to relieve pain such as denervation under local anaesthetic, or endoscopic surgeries

From Tum Caryol

During the clay court season, Murray also said he has had a procedure before most clay court seasons due to the problems that the surface caused his back. After his discomfort throughout the clay season, he had it again before the grass court season. Murray floated the possibility of doing a similar procedure but on the right side of his back after his retirement at Queens on Wednesday

Honestly, I think Wimbledon should be his last hurrah. It sounds as if his body has given up

Described in some detail in the Stu Fraser report to which I posted a link on 6th June.

I think what Tum is adding is that it is a similar thing that is being done now, and therefore not something that is going to have the impact of surgery - it may of course not work.

 "The key difference between a procedure and surgery is that surgery is more invasive and requires an incision, cutting into the skin, to access body tissue, organs, or other internal parts. Procedures are general medical interventions that generally do not require an incision and are less invasive"
