Flyers forward Simon Gagne had successful surgery to remove a bone spur and adhesions that had built up in his right hip, general manager Paul Holmgren said.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Thomas Byrd in Nashville, Tenn.

Gagne will begin rehabilitation Friday and is expected to be fully recovered in 4 to 6 weeks, the Flyers said.

Gagne, 29, had 34 goals and 40 assists in 79 games this season. *
