Jonathan Quick Undergoes Surgery at Marina Del Rey Hospital

He led the L.A. Kings to victory in the 2012 Stanley Cup with superhuman goalkeeping performances. Later that year, Jonathan Quick revealed that during the Cup run, he was plagued by back pain whenever he rested or sat down. It hadn't subsided in the offseason, and something had to be done.

He led the L.A. Kings to victory in the 2012 Stanley Cup with superhuman goalkeeping performances. Later that year, Jonathan Quick revealed that during the Cup run, he was plagued by back pain whenever he rested or sat down. It hadn't subsided in the offseason, and something had to be done.

Quick visited the Kings' team doctor, who brought him to Dr. Robert Watkins IV, co-director of the Marina spine-surgery program. After Dr. Watkins diagnosed him with a herniated disc that pinched his sciatic nerve, Quick underwent surgery to correct the problem.

Quick's recovery was aided by the labor dispute that delayed the start of the 2012–13 season. By the time the Kings got back on the ice, Quick was ready to join his teammates.
