The reality TV star underwent a four-hour operation on Wednesday to remove bone growths that had come loose from his spine, causing severe pain.

The surgery was successful and Hogan was released from hospital later that night, reports TMZ.com.

The sportsman previously underwent laser surgery on his spine last summer after collapsing during an episode of his daughter Brooke's U.S. reality TV show, Brooke Knows Best.
