An NBA league source told the Courier-Post that the 76ers' center, Andrew Bynum, will undergo his scheduled knee procedure next week from Monday to Friday.

The procedure will be performed in Germany by Dr. Peter Wehling. The goal of the non-surgical procedure is to reduce any chronic pain and potential signs of arthritis in Bynum’s knees. 

The treatment takes blood from Bynum's knees and cartilage, and then makes a specific syrum that is re-injected back into his knees around the patella. The assesment will take a week and Bynum will be back in time for training camp before the beginning of pre-season.

After an impressive year on the offensive front, Bynum looks to return at the top of his prime wearing a new jersey. The 24-year old, Plainsboro, New Jersey native averaged double double numbers in the 2011-2012 NBA regular season. He hopes to repeat that possibly under a new contract this year coming.
