On Wednesday, the 63-year-old had a state-of-the-art surgery on his left knee that has been disturbing him in San Jose. The procedure is called Stimwave and it is controlled with a smartphone.

Joe joking about the procedure before it started saying:

If this was another major surgical process, I probably would’ve said no. But I really think this is going to be the answer to my knee and I’m looking forward to an hour or two from now when I get done.

After two and a half hours the procedure was done. The NFL star believes that after the swelling subsides it would feel better than winning a Super Bowl.
