Third-place “Dancing With the Stars” finisher Cristian de la Fuente is back in the swing of things.

The 33-year-old actor, who tore a tendon in his biceps while performing on the ABC dance competition, is recovering well from surgery, his publicist said Thursday.

“The doctor said it was a perfect repair,” publicist Cynthia Snyder told The Associated Press. “He had his stitches out on Tuesday. Everything is going well.”

Friday marks two weeks since the procedure, she said, adding that de la Fuente is wearing a brace until his recovery is complete.

The actor went to Disneyland Wednesday with his “Dancing” partner, Cheryl Burke. De la Fuente has also been making appearances to promote his new USA Network show, “In Plain Sight,” in which he plays the boyfriend of the main character, Mary McCormack.
