Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Jaime Hernandez, admitted that Woods is lucky to still be alive.

“After an injury like this, things are never the same.

“All of this taken together is obviously a pretty severe injury and requires healing to different structures – bone, soft tissue, muscle, tendon, possibly nerves, so it’s a pretty severe injury,” Hernandez said.

A statement posted on Woods’ Twitter account says Woods is “responsive and recovering” after undergoing extensive surgery on his lower right leg and ankle.

Dr. Hernandez says his leg injuries will require 6 months to a year of recovery.

“He has leg limitations, back limitations, but you know the mental side is a huge factor,” Hernandez said.
