Jennifer Grey To Undergo Surgery For 'Dancing With The Stars' Injury

Posted: Updated:

Jennifer Grey had the time of her life on 'Dancing With The Stars,' and now she'll have the scars to prove it.

The 'Dirty Dancing' star braved through a ruptured disc in her lower back to take home the mirror-ball trophy as this season's winner, and now that the show is over, she's headed in to the hospital to get it repaired. Not that she's nervous.

"It's just gonna be like a little surgery where they take out the ruptured disc thing, and you know, it won't be a big deal," she told Access Hollywood. "Compared to the other surgeries I had on my neck, my doctor says it won't be a big deal," Jennifer continued. "I'll be home that night."

Grey underwent a number of surgeries on her neck after a serious 1987 car crash. Earlier this year, she had neck troubles once again, having her entire thyroid removed after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
