Kasi Viswanathan, the CEO of CSK, told PTI “Yes, Dhoni had a successful knee operation on Thursday at the Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. The procedure took place in the morning, and he is recovering well. I lack specifics, I have not yet received all the information regarding the nature of the surgery and other matters”.
We have learned that Dhoni has already been released from the hospital following a “arthroscopic repair” keyhole procedure.
He was already released from the hospital and had returned to Ranchi. Before beginning his long recuperation, he would take a few days to rest at home. Now, it is anticipated that he would have adequate time to prepare for the upcoming IPL, according to another unnamed source close to the CSK administration spoke to PTI.
The news of Dhoni’s successful surgery has garnered widespread support and well-wishes from fans, fellow cricketers, and the sporting community at large. Social media platforms have been flooded with messages of encouragement, highlighting the immense love and respect people have for the former Indian captain.
