"Dancing with the Stars" judge Carrie Ann Inaba is set to go under the knife Wednesday morning to relieve pressure and stiffness in her neck caused by spinal stenosis, People.com reports.
"I have arthritis. The space around my spinal cord has become compressed," Inaba told the site. "I have been locked. My neck was so stiff. We're hoping this procedure will relieve that."
Continues Inaba, "I'll be fine, and if this surgery goes well, I may have another one in the future."
She'll still attend the Dizzy Feet Foundation (of which she is a founding member) Celebration of Dance fundraiser Nov. 29 in L.A.
