Tiger Woods will take quite long time to recover fully after his emergency surgery.
Woods’ path to recovery is long and uncertain after the golf legend involved in car car accident in California.
“He is still in that acute phase where they may still have a lot of work to do in the present, in moments, in days to come.”
“It’s unclear to me whether he will be going back to the operating room or not,” Dr. Jeremy Faust said.
Tiger Woods nasty accident
Tiger Woods was driving shortly after 7 a.m. PT Tuesday in Rancho Palos Verdes.
His SUV crossed a median and veered across two lanes of road before hitting a curb.
He then hit a tree and landing on its side in the brush.
Tiger Woods awake
Tiger was described as awake and responsive after undergoing a long surgical procedure.
This was done on on his lower leg and ankle, which sources said was shattered.
He had significant injuries including open fractures to his tibia and fibula.
Here, the bone splinters into at least two pieces and pierces the skin.
He had a metal rod inserted in his tibia, with his foot and ankle stabilized with a combination of screws and pins.
