Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski underwent surgery for the second time in the span of a month on Monday, the program announced.

The procedure was an inguinal hernia repair, according to the release, which should take four weeks to recover from.

“I’d like to thank everyone at Duke University Hospital who made this procedure as smooth as possible,” Coach K said in a statement released by the school. “With this surgery behind me, I’ll be in great physical condition heading into the Olympics and I’m excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.”

On April 3rd, the day before the National Title Game, Coach K underwent successful knee replacement surgery.

He is expected to be ready for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, which begin on August 5th.
