Kanstantsin Siutsou recovering well
Wednesday, 5th July 2017 – Kanstantsin Siutsou from BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team is recovering well after his injury on the 2nd stage of Tour of Slovenia on 16th of June.
On that unfortunate stage, Kanstantin badly fell on the descent of the second climb. Accompanied by the team doctor, Marjan Koršič, he was immediately taken to local hospital. They confirmed that the rider suffered a complicated fracture of the left femoral bone and took him to urgent surgery. After recovery from surgery, he was taken to home care and now he is starting his rehabilitation.
Dr. Emilio Magni, a member of BAHRAIN MERIDA medical staff, explained Siutsou’s condition: “Yesterday Siutsou has started rehabilitation. He will undergo physiotherapy treatments for 15 days with both aquatic activities and exercises outside the water. Then we scheduled a follow-up x-ray to be done a month after the accident and an orthopaedist examination with Dr. Terragnoli at Poliambulanza Hospital in Brescia. Kanstantsin is relaxed and very happy to have started physiotherapy exercising. He’s working very well and everything is going as planned.”
His fellow riders and staff wish him a soon recovery.
