"The operation went very well", Dr. Del Cerro told the media after successfully performing surgery on Iker Casillas, who fractured a bone in his left hand in the midweek cup clash with Valencia on Wednesday. "The broken fragments [of bone] have been repositioned and two screws have been inserted to hold them in place. The operation went very well. He'll be out of action for eight to twelve weeks, although we're better off waiting and seeing before making estimates. He has had a full reconstruction", added the surgeon from Madrid's Hospital Beata María Ana.
