Nita Strauss got an assist from the football world in getting surgery on her knee.

The guitar virtuoso recently went under the knife to repair a torn meniscus, and the operation was performed by Los Angeles Rams team doctor Michael Banffy.

“Meniscus repair surgery went as well as it could have!” Strauss writes in an Instagram post, adding that she’s “super grateful for the steady hands” of Banffy and “the great staff at the surgery center.”

Strauss already had a connection to the Rams organization, given her gig playing guitar during the team’s home games. She even received a Super Bowl ring after the Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI earlier this year.

Aside from having surgery and getting a Super Bowl ring, Strauss’ 2022 included leaving Alice Cooper‘s live band to play with Demi Lovato on tour.
