One of the doctors that performed the surgery on Rafael Nadal’s troubled hip has expressed his confidence in the success of the operation. The Spaniard had a chronic problem with his left psoas injury. He finally underwent surgery on June 3, when he turned 37.
Angel Ruiz Cotorrro was part of the team that performed arthroscopic surgeries on Nadal’s tendon . The team also treated an old injury on the left hip labrum of 22-time Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal. The team had to clean out fibrotic and degenerated tendon tissue, both proximal as well as distal. They also stitched it in order to reinforce it.
Cotorro revealed that the decision to operate had been made only recently. He has returned to Roland Garros in order to be with Spanish players who are competing there. “We tried every conservative option, as is the case with these injuries.” When the situation does not work, Cotorro said that you need to make decisions ,”.
The doctor sounded equally confident that Nadal’s surgery will be successful. “We have high chances of success.” “The remaining tendon will regenerate. It just needs time and the right treatment to allow it to do so,” said Cotorro.

Cotorro revealed during the same conversation that “I am happy because we have done what we wanted… We are very satisfied and I think he can recover if we follow the recovery time. It’s never a good thing to rush. We’re not rushing for a specific date .”
