Tiger Woods: Golfer after car crash

Four-time key winner Rory McIlroy said it best before this 2021 Masters Championship: “Whenever Tiger Woods tees it up at a golf tournament, it is better”.

Regrettably, due to his fellow PGA Tour golfers and lovers, Woods was unable to take part in this year’s Experts — he will not have the ability to play any events for the near future — because he continues to recuperate from injuries he suffered in a February car accident.

When will golf’s biggest celebrity be prepared to hit the links? Well, he has a long road to healing.

Which are Tiger Woods’ accidents from automobile crash?

Dr. Anish Mahajan, the chief medical officer and interim CEO of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, clarified Woods’ accidents in a statement published from Woods’ official Twitter accounts on Feb. 24:

Mr. Woods suffered considerable orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity which were treated through emergency operation by orthopedic injury specialists at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, a level-1 injury center. Comminuted open fractures involving the upper and lower parts of the tibia and fibula bones have been coated by adding a rod to the tibia. Added injuries to the bones of the ankle and foot have been coated with a combination of pins and screws. Trauma into the muscle and also soft tissue of this leg required surgical discharge of this covering of their muscles to ease pressure because of swelling.

What’s a comminuted open fracture?
A comminuted fracture occurs when the bone has been”broken into bits, which might require surgery for healing.” An open fracture, also called a compound fracture, happens when the broken bone has pierced through the skin.

Dr. Joseph Patterson, an orthopedic trauma surgeon in Keck Medicine of USC in Los Angeles, told The Associated Press that there’s a higher risk of disease for individuals dealing with open fractures.

Washington Football Team quarterback Alex Smith confronted that exact problem after suffering a compound fracture in his right leg in 2018. His recovery has been complicated by a bacterial disease after his first operation. At one stage, medical professionals talked with Smith about the potential for amputating his leg.

Eventually, after a few surgeries and a rigorous rehabilitation process, Smith managed to finish a”miracle” comeback by returning to the area in 2020.

Can Tiger Woods play golf?
It is just too early to know whether Woods will have the ability to rejoin the PGA Tour in the long run. Woods is probably looking at several months of recovery period depending on the information currently accessible, but it is hard to formulate a specific timeline.

“Could he come back in this? It is uncertain now,” Dr. Robert Glatter, an emergency physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in Nyc, told USA Today. “We do not understand. Nonetheless, it’s definitely going to be a very long rehab period and it is likely to be painful. We can assume he’s likely to undergo bumps and turns and spins.

“It is really uncertain. But he has lived at this time.”

Cause of Tiger Woods automobile crash revealed
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told colleagues in an April 7 news conference that Woods’ crash was due solely to excess speed. No visitor citations will be issued.

Woods was forcing 84 to 87 miles down a stretch of street that had a speed limit of 45 miles, and he struck a tree while going 75 mph, Villanueva said. There was not any proof that Woods attempted to brake, and researchers think Woods could have accidentally put his foot back on the accelerator rather than the brake pedal. Police have said there were no signs of disability or distracted driving.
