Oviedo Surgery A Success

Everton are pleased to confirm that surgery on Bryan Oviedo’s fractured left leg was successful and he is now in a comfortable and stable condition in hospital.

Oviedo fractured both his tibia and fibula during Saturday’s FA Cup fourth round victory at Stevenage.

He had an operation on Monday evening and Everton's Head of Medical Services, Danny Donachie, says the first stage in the Costa Rican’s period of rehabilitation had a positive outcome.

Donachie told evertonfc.com: “Bryan's surgery was a big success and he is in a comfortable and stable condition.

“He fractured his tibia and his fibula and they were displaced, so we weren’t able to put them back into place until Monday. He had surgery last night when a rod was put through his tibia, which means he will come back stronger than before.
 
“It was a clean break and that means that there are no pieces of bone. Sometimes when there are small fragments of bone in the area, it can be difficult to deal with. But these are clean breaks, so they will put the bones back into position and it will heal well from there.

“We will be working hard to get him back as quickly as we can.”
