Finally after the medical corps of River plate decided that exploratory and cleansing surgery was necessary, the player Matías Suárez underwent surgery in the sanatorium of La Trinidad, in San Isidro. The operation was on schedule and ended without complications, with success.
The Cordoba striker, who had been dragging a synovitis for several weeks, underwent an arthroscopy that lasted an hour and a half, in which the fluid that caused him pain was drained.
Suárez suffers from this chronic ailment, which does not allow him to train or play normally due to three other operations on the same knee. He was once treated for the patellar tendon, in 2012, and two of the cruciate ligaments, in 2013 and 2014.
The forward could only start five games in this League Tournament and it is not yet known when he will be taken into account by Marcelo Gallardo.
The most optimistic calculations for his recovery show that he could play again for the last two or three dates, but it is speculated that he could be absent for the rest of this year.
