WASHINGTON, Nov. 17, 2011 - D.C. United’s rookie defender Ethan White underwent surgery for a sports hernia on both his right and left sides on Thursday. White traveled to Munich, Germany for the surgery performed by famed hernia specialist Dr. Ulrike Muschaweck.

The defender was recently called-up to the U.S. U-23 national team camp in Duisburg, Germany, but was forced out of action due to a right knee injury on Nov. 11 in a scrimmage with VKL Bochum.

In his first MLS season, White played 24 matches (21 starts), tallying one goal in 1,928 minutes of action. The rookie was the third D.C. United Academy product to sign with the first team on Dec. 14, 2010, following goalkeeper Bill Hamid and midfielder Andy Najar.
