Mark Briscoe’s surgery was a success. However, although the surgery was supposed to repair the ligament in Mark’s wrist, it turned into a reconstruction as there was more damage than initially thought. After accumulating numerous injuries, the ligament finally snapped because the bones were actually out of line and pulling on the ligaments along with the impact of the injury itself. The doctor set the bones back where they belong and pinned them. Then he drilled a hole through Mark’s arm and pulled a tendon from the other side of his arm and made it do the job of the torn ligament. The surgery was very involved, but the doctor said it went technically perfect. Recovery time will be 3-6 months.
