Tiger Woods is in ‘good spirits’ after a follow-up procedure for leg injuries

Tiger Woods is “in good health and in good spirits” following a follow-up procedure on his leg injuries on Friday morning, according to a statement posted on his Twitter account.

Woods’s operation was at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was replaced Wednesday night after a solitary vehicle crash a day earlier, resulting in serious injuries to his right leg.

“Tiger and his family would like to thank you for the wonderful support and message they have received over the past few days,” the statement said. “We won’t have any more updates at this time. Thank you for your continued privacy.”

The Woods were moved from Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, about 18 miles south of downtown Los Angeles, “for continuous care and recovery of the disabled,” according to Dr. Anish Mahajan.

On Tuesday, Mahajan said Woods suffered multiple “open fractures” to his lower right leg and had fractures in his ankle and ankle during emergency surgery.

Two separate sources told ESPN on Wednesday that Woods suffered an injury to his talus bone, which connects the sole of the lower leg to the top of the foot. Bone is the main route for motion. Sources say the screws were presumably inserted into the area to be healed and, if all goes well, eventually allow for normal movement.

The Harbor-UCLA Medical Center is a Level 1 Trauma Center, meaning it is well-suited to provide the most comprehensive surgical and other care for these types of injuries. Cedars-Sinai has a renowned sports medicine institute that offers professional athletes a rehabilitation program for sports and orthopedic injuries.
