Last Sunday, Juan Manuel Correa underwent a planned operation to restore his right leg using modern orthopedic technologies – the methods of so-called “patchwork surgery”. The operation in a specialized London clinic lasted 17 hours, and doctors express hope for its successful outcome.

Despite this, the first few days after the operation were critically important, and now, after 72 hours, this hope has grown significantly. Two weeks later, Juan-Manuel will have another additional operation, but it will not be so difficult.

Doctors suggest that Correa will be able to leave the hospital after about six weeks, after which a long rehabilitation period will begin, the purpose of which is to completely restore the work of the right limb.

“The previous few weeks were extremely difficult – they turned out to be the hardest thing that I have ever experienced, both physically and psychologically,” commented the rider. – I understand that the prospects for recovering my legs are very uncertain, especially the right one, and that the rehabilitation period will be extremely long and difficult.

I am still in the process of realizing what has happened and is happening. I want to thank everyone who expressed their support in one way or another. I was simply struck by how many friendly and warm messages I received, thanks to everyone! Know that this is very important. ”

Juan Manuel Correa was seriously injured on August 31 during the Formula 2 race at Spa – as a result of the accident, Antoine Hubert died, and the FIA, as well as Belgian law enforcement agencies are investigating this tragic incident.
