American Idol winner Phillip Phillips may not need surgery after all. Previous reports say that the 21-year-old urgently needed surgery to treat his kidney problem but it seems his health has definitely turned a corner and may not even need to have surgery urgently after all.


Phillips was originally scheduled to have surgery a week after his American Idol win but had to postpone it due to a sinus infection leading to a high fever. But now it seems that he had received an alternative treatment and is responding well to it - so well that he will be able to take part in the American Idol tour scheduled to kick off next month.

According to E!Online, an insider said Phillips is "being treated and doing well." More details about his current health have not been released by the crooner or his family.


The top ten Idol finalists will start their national tour July 6. They have 45 dates scheduled for the tour and is expected to perform in their last show in Milwaukee on September 11.


A rep for the tour said: "He [Phillip] will still be attending all the tour dates and is really looking forward to the launch on July 6."
