“Thank you to the incredible surgeons, doctors, nurses and staff at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Cedars Sinai Medical Center. You have all taken such great care of me and I cannot thank you enough,” he added. “I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day.”
Woods’ fractures from the crash are on the upper and lower parts of both the fibula and tibia. In order to stabilize the area of the fractures, he had to have a rod inserted. Screws and pins were used to treat other injuries in the ankle and foot, while doctors also sliced muscle in the area to relieve pressure and swelling in the area.
