The Piano Man recently had both of his hips replaced, but he's still got us all feeling alright.

Pop star Billy Joel underwent surgery last week to fix a congenital condition and is doing “extremely well,” his rep told People mag on Wednesday.

Earlier this month, Joel told radio host Howard Stern he “had” to undergo the procedure because of the impact on his body from years of touring, E! News reported.

Joel spokeswoman Claire Mercuri told People she did not know when the 61-year-old Grammy-winner planned to return to the stage.
