"The surgery was a complete success. The doctors completed a procedure to stabilize his back." our sources say.

Kevin has already been able to walk and talk to people around him.

Although he was badly injured in the car accident, sources close to Hart told us he did not injure his spinal cord, and that the comedian was able to "walk and move his extremities."

The actor is lucky it wasn't worse.

As we reported, Kevin was pinned in his overturned Plymouth 'Cuda and had to be rescued by the fire department. Two other passengers were in the car, including his wife's personal trainer, Rebecca Broxterman, and her significant other.

According to the CHP, the female in the car sustained minor injuries, but the 28-year-old male in the car was airlifted to a local hospital. He also suffered major back injuries.
