Lindros Visits Third Doctor

October 22, 1996

PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Eric Lindros has visited a third doctor to seek a remedy to the groin injury that has kept him out of the Philadelphia Flyers lineup so far this season.

The All-Star center and team captain skated in pain Monday at the Flyers’ practice rink in Voorhees, N.J., then flew to Durham, N.C., to be examined by William Garrett at the Duke University Sports Medicine Center.

Team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Arthur Bartolozzi had recommended Lindros see a groin specialist. Lindros has also consulted his family physician, Peter Fowler.

``He’s apparently an expert on the groin,″ Flyers general manager Bob Clarke said of Garrett. ``Bartolozzi does not think there will be any different treatment here. He just wants to make sure we are doing everything the right way.″

Clarke said Lindros could be out from two to five more weeks. ``No one except Eric is going to know when the pain is gone,″ he said.
