Tiger Woods' car crash & narrow escape: Trump, Obama's good wishes
Golfer Tiger Woods has undergone extensive surgery on his right lower leg, ankle and foot. There were comminuted open fractures of tibia and fibula. Alignment procedures are on under tension (weight bearing) after all the fragments have been repositioned with rods, screws and pins.

LOS ANGELES, Feb 25: Golfer Tiger Woods, 45, had a providential escape although with shattered bones on the lower right leg, ankle and foot when his car rolled over several times after striking the median in the Rancho Palos Verdes suburb of Los Angeles on Tuesday morning. He got away with life because of the seat belt. It was a single car accident.

Fragmented tibia and fibula (the two long bones connecting the knee and the ankle, tibia being the larger one -See Image ) were repositioned with rods and screws, said Dr Anish Mahajan, CEO of Harbor UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles. Alignment under tension (weight bearing) takes long. More because the ankle and the foot also had fractures. Screws and pins were used in the foot and the ankle. The orthopaedic emergency surgery at the trauma centre was quite extensive.

In surgical terms, he suffered comminuted open fractures of tibia and fibula ("Comminuted fractures" are multiple fractures resulting in fragments and "Open fractures" or "compound fractures" are when fractured bones come out of the skin). Recovery takes three to six months as a special boot has to be worn when the cast is removed.

Former President Donald Trump wished him quick recovery. He told Fox News: “He’s going to be back. I have no doubt about it, he’s going to be back ... As a golfer he’s just incredible. He’s an incredible guy ... All I’d say to him is get better and get out there because we all miss him. We need Tiger. When Tiger is in contention, which is often, the ratings are double and triple. It’s very few people that can cause that kind of phenomena.”

Trump had presented Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2019.

Former President Barack Obama remarked, "Sending my prayers to @TigerWoods and his family tonight—here’s to a speedy recovery for the GOAT of golf. If we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s to never count Tiger out."
