He announced to his fans that he will have to undergo additional surgery. Last year, Al shared that he would have to get more surgery done on his knee. He revealed this during one of his walks in New York City. Al needs a second operation to help treat the first knee replacement he got at a younger age.

“Before my left knee went south, a 10k+ step day was no big deal,” Al Roker wrote in his Instagram post. “Today was the first day, I felt good walking this much. But the knee replacement of this 22-year-old knee replacement is just around the corner.”
