Khedira has arthroscopic surgery on his left knee
Real Madrid announce that Sami Khedira underwent an arthroscopy on his left knee at the Hessingpark Clinic in Augsburg.
Khedira, currently out of action with muscular problems with his left hamstring underwent a "revisionary arthroscopy on his left knee", informed the club.
The midfielder suffered a muscular injury when training with the German national squad and this has generated much controversy. Real Madrid claim that the source of this injury was not his playing for Madrid in the league match against Real Sociedad in Anoeta despite the German Federation affirming that the player joined up with the national squad already injured.
The muscular injury that was due to see him out of action for up to five or six weeks was an opportunity for the player to undergo surgery on his left knee, this being the “healthy” knee after the right knee was badly damaged in November of last year.
Kherdira suffered a cruciate ligament injury on his right knee in a friendly last year against Italy and was out of action for five months but managed to recover in time to make the Champions League final and he played for Germany during the World Cup.
The arthroscopy was carried out in the Hessingpark Clinic in Augsburg, the same centre where he underwent knee surgery and according to a Real Madrid spokesperson "all went according to plan." The minimal invasive surgery procedure was carried out by Doctor Ulrich Boenisch under supervision from Madrid’s club doctor, Jesús Olmo.
