Wisconsin RB Corey Clement isn't going to a local doctor for his sports hernia surgery.

The team said last week that Clement would be out 4-6 weeks because of a sports hernia injury. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, he's having the surgery in Germany by a doctor who's considered to be a specialist

According to sources, Clement was scheduled to travel Tuesday to Munich, Germany, for treatment from a surgeon who specializes in the injury.

Ulrike Muschawek is the chief surgeon and founder of the Hernia Center in Munich, the largest European facility that specializes in hernias of the abdominal wall and groin area.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, Muschawek specializes in minimally invasive techniques to help patients return to activities as soon as possible. An athlete going to Germany for surgery isn't new. Los Angeles Lakers G Kobe Bryant routinely heads to Germany for knee treatment.
