Mark Ballas: On the Mend, in Love with Sabrina Bryan

by at . Comments
Totally DatingDancing with the Stars professional Mark Ballas is on the mend after undergoing arthroscopic surgery earlier this week on his left shoulder.

Ballas dislocated his shoulder doing the Cha Cha during the Dancing finale on November 27, tearing a shoulder muscle in the process.

According to his father, ballroom great Corky Ballas, the minimally invasive surgery "went really well" and at some point, Ballas should be able to join the Dancing with the Stars national tour that kicks off December.

That's good news for Ballas - and it's great news for Sabrina Bryan, who has become his real-life girlfriend and was facing two months on the road without him.

"She's been amazing," said Ballas. "She's been here every day, helping me along... While we were dancing, we were talking to each other. I don't think it's on the tape because the camera was on her feet. But I was saying, 'I'm in pain, it's hurting.'

And she said, 'I know, baby, I know.' She just kept looking at me and helping me stay focused. I wasn't going to let a mere shoulder injury get in the way. I just wanted to do the dance one last time."
