Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday, successfully underwent a surgical procedure on his femur at the Duchess International Hospital, Ikeja, Lagos.

According to a statement released late Saturday by the hospital management and signed by its Medical Director, Dr Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi, the procedure was performed by a team comprising of six specialist Doctors.

The statement is titled ‘Successful medical treatment of the Vice President’.

It read, “The Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON, was admitted to the Duchess International Hospital GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, today on account of a fracture of his right femur (thigh bone), possibly related to a longstanding injury associated with a game of squash.

“He had a surgical operation performed by a team of specialist doctors, including Dr Wallace Ogufere (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr Om Lahoti (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr Babajide Lawson (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr Ken Adegoke (Consultant in Anaesthesia & Critical Care); Dr Oladimeji Agbabiaka (Consultant Anaesthetist); and Dr Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi (Consultant Physician & Medical Director).”

“The operation was successful, and he is expected to be discharged within the next few days.”

Earlier, the Vice President, in a tweet, revealed that he had been admitted for a surgical procedure.

“I have been admitted today at the hospital for a surgical procedure on account of a recurrent pain in the leg possibly sustained from an injury while playing squash,” he wrote.
