Singer Barry Manilow is recovering in a wheelchair after having surgery to repair torn cartilage in both hips.
Manilow's condition forced him to cancel 19 Las Vegas concerts
Doctors expect the 63-year-old star to be back on his feet by the end of the week, Manilow's publicist said.
Manilow had the operation in California on Monday, just hours after winning an Emmy award for best individual variety performance the previous day.
"He's doing great," publicist Carol Marshall said. "He's still on a high from winning an Emmy."
The singer picked up a trophy for his show Barry Manilow: Music and Passion at the award ceremony on Sunday night.
He had postponed his surgery in order to take part in the show, during which he sang the theme tune to classic US pop programme American Bandstand.
Manilow went under the surgeon's knife hours after the ceremony, and took his award into the operating theatre with him.
According to Ms Marshall, the singer faces "a good six weeks or so of physical therapy" before returning to the stage.

He is scheduled to perform his award-winning show in Chicago in October, before a series of Las Vegas dates in November.
The veteran performer had to cancel 19 dates in the city this summer, telling fans he was in too much pain to continue.
Earlier this year, Manilow topped the US album charts for the first time in nearly 29 years.
His latest album, The Greatest Songs of the Sixties, is released in mid-October.
It features cover versions of the Righteous Brothers' You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling and the Beatles' And I Love Her.
Best known for hits like Mandy, Copacabana and Looks Like We Made It, Manilow has sold more than 70 million records worldwide.
