The 31-year coaching veteran, who is Division I's winningest coach with a record of 913-177, had the procedure to clean up adhesive capsulitis, or frozen shoulder.

"Coach Summitt had surgery this morning to help regain full range of motion in both of her shoulders," head trainer Jenny Moshak said in a statement. "Dr. [Edwin] Spencer used arthroscopic surgery on the right shoulder only, but relieved adhesive capsulitis on the left shoulder as well."

Summitt will be limited for the next two months during recovery and rehabilitation.
