Robert Kubica has undergone a third operation, following an initial operation on his right forearm and a second surgery, taking care of his right foot, shoulder, humerus, and anterior elbow last Friday.
Wednesday’s third operation treated the complex fracture to his elbow. “The operation lasted eight hours in order to stabilise and reconstruct the damaged fragments of the delicate joint structure,” according to an official statement by Lotus Renault GP. “At the end of the surgery, the doctors were pleased with the outcome, with the procedure being completed successfully.”
Kubica remains in intensive care at Italy’s Santa Corona Hospital where he is likely to remain for the start of his geriatric rehabilitation program.
