Mariano Rivera Injury: Doctor Visit Reveals Complications With Knee

May 9, 2012 – 12:18 am by Ryan Phillips

If you’re a fan of the New York Yankees, you may want to stop reading now because you’re about to get more bad news.

During a visit with surgeons on Monday, Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was supposed to set a date for his impending knee surgery. Rivera was expected to need surgery to repair his right ACL and meniscus, but according to his agent, the visit revealed some “complications.”

Things didn’t go smoothly when meeting with doctors and a date for the surgery has not been set, as Rivera will now confer with Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and team doctors.

The fear was that the original diagnosis of a torn ACL and meniscus was wrong, and that Rivera also had a torn MCL. But a team official shot that speculation down.

Cashman wouldn’t reveal what the complications were but he did say he didn’t believe they would keep Rivera from returning in 2013.

Rivera hasn’t ruled out a return this season but that would be highly unlikely, especially now that there are complications that will hold surgery off for even longer.

  3. Bad news is that the date for the surgery has yet to be set and it’s taking longer to get this squared away than expected. This was supposed to be very straight-forward and it hasn’t been.

  4. Fall cases commonly result in very serious injuries to the knee. As a knee injury lawyer I regularly meet clients who have suffered knee injuries from slips on wet surfaces, trips on drop-offs, broken and irregular sidewalks, stairs and other tripping hazards, as well as steps with missing or inadequate handrails. These hazards are often made worse by inadequate lighting which contributes to further concealing these dangers. Serious knee injuries occur when clients trip or fall on such hazards and land with full force on their knee. :
