The Great Khali (Dalip Singh) has had a tumor removed from his pituitary gland at UPMC in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, reports TribLive News. Here is an excerpt from the article explaining the procedure:

“The tumor removed during a four-hour procedure on Wednesday led to the growth spurt that caused Singh to achieve a height of 7 feet, 1 inch and a weight of 347 pounds, according to UPMC neurosurgeon Dr. Joseph Maroon, who led the surgical team.

Maroon said Thursday the tumor causes a condition called acromegaly, which can be fatal if left untreated.”

It is expected that it will take Khali around two to three months to recover.
