NEW ORLEANS – Hornets owner George Shinn had successful surgery Wednesday morning, according to team spokesman Harold Kaufman.

Kauffman said that Shinn, who is battling prostate cancer, is out of surgery and that the operation went well.

Shinn had his prostate removed at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore.  According to team officials, the surgery removed 100 percent of the cancer and he is expected to make a full recovery.

“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 Harold Kaufman.
