Haven Denney, the 2015 U.S. pairs silver medalist with partner Brandon Frazier, underwent surgery on her right knee in Vail, Colorado, on Monday, according to a U.S. Figure Skating press release Friday. The extent of the injury and the timetable for her return are unknown at this time.

Denney will begin her rehabilitation in Vail and then continue at her training base in Florida before she returns to the ice.

Denney and Frazier are coming off a season in which they won the silver medal at Skate America and placed 12th in their debut at the world championships. They are also the 2013 world junior champions.

The operation was performed at the Steadman Clinic by Dr. Robert F. LaPrade, a world-renowned expert on knee injuries. According to his biography on the Steadman Clinic's website, "[LaPrade] has treated athletes at all levels, including Olympic, professional, semi-professional and intercollegiate athletes and has returned many athletes back to full participation both after treating either their new injuries or previous failed knee surgeries."
