Fizz in good hands, says BCB physician

The Bangladesh Cricket Board’s decision to choose Dr Andrew Wallace of Fortius Hospital in London for paceman Mustafizur Rahman’s surgery was due to the experience of the English orthopaedic surgeon.

Mustafizur is set to go under the blade on Thursday at Bupa Cromwell Hospital in London, an internationally renowned private hospital.

According to chief BCB physician Dr Debashish Chowdhury, the board had discussions with three surgeons - two based in England, as advised by the England and Wales Cricket Board, and another in Australia. The three surgeons advised surgery for Mustafizur, who suffered SLAP (Superior Labrum from Anterior to Posterior) tear in his left shoulder in England recently.

Dr Wallace was an easy choice for the BCB, given his experience in sports surgery. The English surgeon played a crucial role in the London Olympics in 2012 and has treated many cricketers from England and India, including the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Ashish Nehra, who returned back to the game gaining full fitness. Sachin underwent a shoulder operation under the supervision of Dr Wallace at the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth on March 27, 2006.

“He has very rich experience with sports surgery. The surgery should not last more than 30 to 40 minutes. The toughest part of this surgery is the rehab, which can last at least five months,” Dr Debashish told the media on Saturday.

Dr Debashish, who has applied for England visa to join Mustafizur for the surgery, informed that another Bangladesh pacer Rubel Hossain also underwent the same operation.

“It took around nine months for Rubel to recover. We are expecting Mustafizur to get fit within five to six months,” said the chief BCB physician.

Mustafizur travelled to England last month to join Sussex for the Royal London One-Day Cup and the NatWest Twenty20 Blast. Following a brilliant debut in the T20 Blast, the Bangladesh pace bowler complained of pain in his shoulder.
