Doctors for Argentina Football SuperStar Diego Maradona brain surgery successful The Argentine football superstar Diego Maradona had an intracranial hematoma and had an emergency operation in a private specialist clinic on the evening of the 3rd. According to the doctor, Maradona’s operation was successful and his recovery was good.
Maradona’s doctor said that he had successfully removed the lump, but he will still be closely monitored. A large number of Maradona fans gathered at the entrance of the clinic holding banners with Maradona’s portrait and the words “Come on, Maradona!”
Maradona suffered a sudden illness on Monday and was rushed to the hospital. After the lump was found on examination, he was transferred to the private clinic where he is currently attending. Maradona, who just turned 60 last Friday, has also been suffering from illness. He had two heart attacks, hepatitis, and stomach surgery.
Argentine media speculated that the blood clot in Maradona’s brain was caused by an impact on the brain. Maradona’s doctor said that blood clots are “undetectable”, and people with lumps in the brain rarely remember a blow to the head.
Neurosurgeon Raul Matera said in an interview that patients with such operations can be discharged from the hospital within 24 or 48 hours.
