We are sad to report that Lady Gaga has been forced to cancel the remainder of her Born This Way Ball tour due to a hip injury known as a labral tear. Gaga’s doctors have determined that her injury is serious enough to warrant surgery. According to our research, a procedure known as hip arthroscopy is likely to be performed. (Note: We are not doctors. The information below is based on simple online research and is not meant to replace the expertise of trained medical professionals.)
Basic recovery from hip arthroscopy generally takes six to twelve weeks and full recovery– in which normal activity can be resumed without restriction–often takes four to six months. However, these are just averages; recovery time can vary quite a bit from patient to patient depending on a variety of factors such as the severity of the tear. It is highly unlikely that Gaga will be able to perform the type of strenuous dance routines that characterize her shows for quite some time, at least a few months realistically.
Sadly, there is a possibility that she will never again be able to dance quite like she used to, though full recovery is possible in many cases and we should remain hopeful. Frankly, we have neither the medical expertise nor the necessary information about her particular case to make an educated guess on this matter. However, we all know Gaga is one of the most strong-willed and determined people on the planet and these qualities will undoubtedly come in handy over the next several months. Furthermore, she has the love and support of her loved ones and her millions of little monsters to encourage and comfort her on her path to recovery.

Let us all wish Mother Monster a quick and painless recovery.
(For those wondering, part two of our three-part feature on the Born This Way Ball has been canceled, as a guide to the Ball would no longer be of use to our readers. However, the final portion of the feature—the analysis—is still on its way.)
