According to Finnish newspaper Aamulehti, Evgeni Plushenko will need two surgeries, both his knee and his back. Two different doctors will do the operations, and he can then start his rehabilitation aiming to Sochi 2014.

Sorry, the clip was short, and that is all the information I got.:plush:

Wow! Not a good picture at all. I really wonder about his ability to return to the ice given the complexity of what's going on. IMHO, I think that he would be crazy to do so. :eek:

His back as well? Never mind skating, I hope both surgeries are without complications and that he'll recover quickly.

I really think its time for Plushenko call it day then. He needs to be healthy so he can play with his little boy, teach him to skate etc.

There are lots of types of back surgeries and not all of them are severe. Without specific details regarding the surgery and what is entailed, it's premature to put him out to pasture. :lol: I think he'll be just fine.

If I learned anything about Plushenko it's that he's the skating version of the bionic man. Keeps coming back and looking as strong as ever.

Gosh, this reminds me of a Youtube clip I saw with Mary Lou Retton, about how she had to get a hip replacement and how great her doctor was. Here's the clip:

Instead of advertising his skills, in the back of my mind it really felt like a warning not to take up gymnastics at the elite level.

I wish Plushenko the best, but what does this say about the state of the Russian men's program. Are there really not other men who are going to fight him for his place at Sochi? He is an old man (for skating) and clearly he has his limitations. Why is he still at the top over there?

He says that the doctors found an intervertebral disc hernia of considerable size. Also, Mishin is quoted saying that in April they will start working on the new program and they are going to collaborate with foreign specialists from Europe and America.

Because the judges (both national and international) are more indulgent with him than with Artur Gachinski. :P
