Rishabh Pant to be airlifted to Mumbai for Ligament Surgery

Rishabh Pant to be airlifted to Mumbai for Ligament Surgery

Rishabh Pant has survived life-threatening injuries sustained during his brutal car crash accident on December 30. After the fatal accident, Rishabh was taken to Dehradhun’s hospital where he was undergoing treatment. However, now the BCCI has taken a decision of airlifting Rishabh Pant from Dehradun to Mumbai because one of the two ligament tears in his knee needs immediate treatment.

“Rishabh will undergo surgery and subsequent procedures for ligament tears and will continue to be monitored by the BCCI Medical Team throughout his recovery and rehabilitation,” the BCCI said in a statement.

Further BCCI said that they will leave no stone unturned to help & accelerate Pant’s recovery process & will provide him with every possible support which Pant requires during this tenure. When Rishabh Pant will be transferred to Mumbai he will be under the care of Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala who has previously worked with Sachin Tendulkar, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuvraj Singh & also with Olympics athletes. For the unversed, Pardiwala is the head of the Center for Sports medicine & Director of Arthroscopy & Shoulder Service at Kokilaben Hospital in Andheri, a western suburb of the city.

Though BCCI has appreciated the best & immediate treatment given to Pant by the hospitals in Uttarakhand, they prefer to have his injuries being treated by BCCI’s own medical team. Pant’s medical insurance covers the cost of his treatment but the expenses for transferring him in an air ambulance will be borne by the BCCI.

Rishabh Pant’s MRI scans for the brain & spine returned with normal results but he hasn’t undergone MRI scans for his leg injuries. After two-three meetings with BCCI doctors & doctors at Max Hospital in Dehradun the assessment results were that one of the tears needs urgent assessment.

How did Rishabh Pant meet a tragic road accident?

The tragic accident happened on 30th December when Rishabh Pant was on his way to meet his mother in Roorkee in Uttarakhand. Around 5.30 am his car crashed into a road divider. However, by God’s grace, he escaped without sustaining life-threatening injuries even when his car turned up in flames. He received immediate care at Saksham hospital in Roorkee after that he was moved to Max Hospital in Dehradun where he underwent Plastic Surgery to treat laceration wounds, abrasions & facial injuries. MRI scans done on his brain & spine that evening returned normal results but the scans of his knees & foot were postponed due to pain & swelling.

It is too early to put a time frame on Rishabh Pant’s return to action as he hasn’t started walking yet. India’s next three big assignments in 2023 are the four-Test fixtures against Australia at home in the February-March window, WTC final in England in June & the World Cup in India in the October-November window. There are rare chances of Rishabh Pant appearing in the Test series against Australia however no final decision on his availability has been given yet. There are chances that Pant would be ruled out of IPL 2023 which will commence in the April-May window.
