Matthew Broderick is recovering from back surgery after agitating an old sports injury.
The Producers star underwent the minor procedure recently, with sources telling New York gossip column Page Six that he and his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, “were forced to miss some events in the Hamptons last weekend because of the surgery”.

A spokesperson for the actor confirms the news, saying, “Matthew had a sports injury some time ago. He pulled something in his back and recently underwent routine surgery. It was a simple procedure, he is fine and is up and about and back at home.”
