Prince Philip's hip operation to involve general anaesthetic

Admitted to Hospital for Planned Surgery on His Hip

The husband of Queen Elizabeth II Duke of Edinburgh admitted to the London hospital king Edward VII.

It is carried out under a general anaesthetic or an epidural, with the surgeon making an incision into the hip, removing the damaged joint and replacing it with an artificial joint made of a metal alloy or ceramic.

He retired from public life previous year but has since appeared several times at royal engagements alongside Queen Elizabeth.

Both the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen had been staying at Windsor Castle. He was spotted driving on the Windsor Castle grounds as recently as last week, according to the U.K.'s Press Association. "He is progressing satisfactorily at this early stage", Buckingham Palace said in a statement. Two months later the infection recurred and he was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.

Buckingham Palace says the procedure for the Queen's 96-year-old husband had been planned.

"If Prince Philip is in a condition to attend the Windsor Horse show on May 9, he will most likely be fit to attend the wedding ten days later", adds the journalist, saying these are "key fixtures" in the Duke's diary.

Robert Griffin III signs 1-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome says Griffin will sign the contract next week after reaching an agreement late Tuesday. But at this point, we just want him to stay healthy. "We're always working to make our roster as good as it can be".

When it was announced past year that he would be retiring from official engagements, Buckingham Palace stressed that the decision was not health-related and he had the full support of the Queen.

Prince Philip has been a constant and often mischievous presence at royal functions for decades and is well-known for punctuating royal pomp with a taste for off-colour jokes.

The two were introduced in 1939 when then princess Elizabeth's father king George VI and his family toured the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, in England's south coast, where Philip was a cadet.

Rehabilitation can be demanding and requires commitment, with patients having to walk with crutches for the first four to six weeks after the operation.

He has been reported to be hobbled by hip pain, but the news of the planned surgery took many by surprise.

Patients tend to feel back to normal after about three months.
