Dwight Howard underwent successful surgery to repair a herniated disk in his lower back on Friday.

The Magic said Howard was doing well in recovery.

Howard is expected to make a complete and full recovering in approximately four months.

"Is it going to be perfect? It should be," said team doctor Craig Mintzer.

"It really should be. He shouldn't have restrictions whatsoever. He should come back fully. There shouldn't be an issue there. Really, it's just a matter of time."
