The former Soviet President Michail Gorbatschow is currently in Munich in the Schön Klinik München Harlaching where he underwent spinal surgery. His doctor Professor Michael Mayer, Medical Director of the Schön Klinik, is pleased with the outcome of the operation. "The operation went well and our patient is recovering very quickly considering the circumstances.”
On April 9th, the Nobel Peace Prize Winner was admitted to the specialized Orthopedic Clinic; the clinic performs around 3,000 spinal surgeries every year. The two hour operation was led by Professor Mayer, an internationally recognized expert in back operations, and assisted by his team. Five days after the surgery, spinal surgeon Professor Mayer has commented, "Mr. Gorbatschow is doing very well.” He expects his patient to be able to leave Munich within the next couple of days.
