George Hamilton Getting Knee Replacement Surgery



    George Hamilton is having his right knee replaced.

    His publicist, Jeffrey Lane, said the elective surgery was being performed Thursday in Chicago.

    He said the 69-year-old Hamilton first injured his knee while starring in "Chicago" on Broadway, and decided to have his knee replaced after he injured it a second time when he competed on the second season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" in 2006.

    Hamilton is expected to return to Los Angeles next week.
