Two days after suffering serious injuries in a single-vehicle crash, Tiger Woods has been transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to a statement from his doctor.
Woods, 45, was moved to a different facility roughly 20 miles away “for continuing orthopedic care and recovery,” said Dr. Anish Mahajan, interim CEO and chief medical officer of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where Woods originally was taken to the trauma center and treated following his accident early Tuesday morning in Rolling Hills Estates, California.
Woods survived Tuesday morning’s car accident with his life, but the road to recovery has just begun. He suffered “significant” leg injuries that already required extensive surgery and a rod being inserted into his lower right leg.
Woods’ injuries include “comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower tibia and fibula” Mahajan said.
Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby told reporters Tuesday that responders told him there were injuries to both legs, although the extent of the injuries to the left leg remains unknown.
