Neymar Undergoes Successful Ankle Surgery in Doha

Brazilian football superstar and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) player, Neymar da Silva Santos Jr, has successfully undergone ankle surgery at Aspetar, the world-renowned orthopaedic and sports medicine hospital in Doha.

He arrived in Doha early on Friday morning, March 10th, to undergo the surgery.

The surgery went well and will spare the 31-year-old player the risk of a recurrence of the injury, Aspetar, the official medical partner of the French football club team, said in a press statement.

Aspetar's expert ankle surgeon, Pieter D'Hooghe, renowned ankle surgeon Pierre James Calder from Fortius Clinic - London, and Brazilian national team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar performed the surgery.

Neymar will now undergo a period of rest and recovery from the operation. The Parisian club stated it will take three to four months until he can return to team training.

That timeline means he will miss the rest of the 2022/23 season.

Neymar needed to be taken off on a stretcher after rolling his right ankle in a Ligue 1 win over LOSC Lille on February 19th. He also injured the same ankle at the 2022 World Cup.
