Carbonero surgery successful

Sampdoria announced that Carlos Carbonero’s meniscus surgery was a success.

The Colombian midfielder is on loan from Roma, but hasn’t played since the defeat to Napoli on January 24 as he’s been suffering with a knee injury.

After trying to rehabilitate the player, it was decided that surgery was the only option, and the Blucerchiati have announced that the procedure was a success.

“The meniscus surgery undergone by Carlos Carbonero today was a complete success,” a statement on Samp’s official website confirmed.

“The midfielder - who was operated on in Barcelona by professor Ramon Cugat Bertomeu, assisted by doctor Guido Damiani from the orthopaedic staff of professor Claudio Mazzola - will remain in the Quirónsalud hospital, where he’ll begin his rehabilitation in the next few days.”

No recovery time has been given for Carbonero, but meniscus surgery would typically see a player sidelined for between three and six weeks.
