American Idol 2012 Winner Phillip Phillips Surgery Goes Well

American Idol 2012 winner Phillip Phillips finally went under the knife on Wednesday for desperately needed kidney surgery. Phillip Phillips, who won American Idol 2012 in May, battled severe pain all season due to a genetic disorder that causes his body to produce large, unpassable kidney stones.

Phillip Phillips, 21, has needed surgery to remove a buildup of huge kidney stones since he began competing on American Idol 2012. He delayed the kidney surgery because he wanted desperately to finish out the competition. Although he was often in excruciating pain, it paid off in the end when he won American Idol 2012 over petite powerhouse Jessica Sanchez.
