Despite his busy schedule, Ryan Seacrest found time to repair a torn tendon in his elbow Wednesday.

"I had a probe stuck into my right elbow," the 37-year-old "American Idol" host said on his KIIS-FM radio show. "They went in with a tiny little probe and they scraped some scar tissue from the tendon, because I tore the tendon from working out."

Seacrest was awake for the procedure, though he "couldn't look" at what was happening. "But [I could feel] the pressure."

The minor surgery took longer than Seacrest anticipated. "I didn't calculate suturing into my schedule," he said. "I thought it was an in-and-out, 12-minute procedure."

The surgery lasted a few hours, though "it was very easy and practically noninvasive," said Seacrest, who's still going strong with girlfriend Julianne Hough, 23.

Though he's still recovering, Seacrest is still expected to host "American Idol"'s results show Thursday.
