"Dancing With the Stars" champ Jennifer Grey will be heading into the operating room.Now that the competition is over, Grey is having surgery to fix the ruptured disc in her lower back that nearly prevented her from dancing the night she won the Mirror Ball Trophy.

The actress ruptured the disc the night before her final dance.

Grey said it's just a little surgery where they take out the ruptured disc. She said compared to the operations she's had on her neck, it won't be a big deal.
