Dean Ambrose Recovers After Triceps Surgery
Dean Ambrose was injured in his arm during the event he was participating. Today, the superstar is recovering from surgery, but at this time we do not know how long he will be off.
the official statement by WWE.com :
WWE can confirm that Dean Ambrose underwent a successful surgery on Tuesday night to repair a high-grade injury to the triceps tendon.
The procedure was performed by Dr. Jeffrey Dugas in Birmingham, Alabama, and took about 40 minutes.
“It ruptured part of the tendon of the distal triceps, where it joins the forearm bone, called the olecranon,” Dr. Dugas told WWE.com. “Basically, it ripped approximately 50 percent of the triceps tendon away from the bone, so yesterday we repaired all that area to the bone. The surgery was very simple; we removed all the extra bursal tissue – all those extra swollen things around your elbow. “
Dugas added that Ambrose started physical therapy, starting with light range of motion exercises and that he expects to leave Birmingham at the end of the afternoon.
It is unknown at this time how long Ambrose will be out of action.
As WWE has learned, it is not clear how long Ambrose will go off. In either case, this type of injury usually requires inactivity for 2-4 months.
