Marco Odermatt, who injured his right knee on 22 December 2019, already underwent successful surgery on the following Monday afternoon.
The check-ups at Balgrist university clinic resulted in a fracture to the outer meniscus. The 22-year-old athlete was then operated on by PD Dr. med. Sandro Fucentese, with an arthroscopic partial removal of the right outer meniscus.
Marco Odermatt can already leave the hospital tomorrow morning and will immediately start his rehabilitation treatment.
“With his outstanding feel for the body and considered nature, Marco will achieve an optimally dosed, quickest possible rehabilitation,” says the team doctor of Swiss-Ski, Walter O. Frey.
If all goes to plan, we are confident that Marco Odermatt will be able to return to racing as soon as this winter.
