Daniel Craig will undergo ankle surgery after sustaining an injury while filming “Bond 25.”

“Daniel Craig will be undergoing minor ankle surgery resulting from an injury sustained during filming in Jamaica,” the franchise’s official Twitter account posted. “Production will continue whilst Craig is rehabilitating for two weeks post-surgery. The film remains on track for the same release date in April 2020.”

According to the Sun, the actor fell earlier this month while sprinting on the set of the latest James Bond film.

“He was sprinting during filming when he slipped and fell quite awkwardly,” a source told the British tabloid. “He was in quite a lot of pain and was complaining about his ankle.”

According to the information that is provided in the press, most likely he has a tear of the anterior talofibular ligament or the tear of peroneal tendon or both. In my opinion, if you had an ankle fracture, it would take more than 2 to 3 weeks for him to return back on the set. 

At CFFA we treat these type of injuries surgically and nonsurgically all the time. Sometimes in situations like this, for a very active athletic person it makes more sense to undergo surgery almost immediately because they will recuperate faster. In the more sedentary people, we recommend 4 to 6 months of non-surgical treatment first

     At Central Florida Foot and Ankle Center, LLC we commonly see partial and complete Achilles tendon tears. Obviously, in situations with complete Achilles tendon tears in professional athletes, surgical intervention is necessary as soon as possible. Surgeons utilize different techniques and graphs to repair and reinforce the tendon during open surgery. Percutaneous Achilles repair surgery is becoming more popular as well.

Even though I am not a treating physician for Brandon Brooks, my opinion is he probably underwent surgery within the first 48 hours of his rupture. He will be required to be non-weightbearing for four weeks after the surgery and extensive physical therapy. Most likely he will walk with a limp for at least six months and it will take him nine months to a year to recover from this injury. There is always a question about complete hundred percent recovery as muscle weakness is common

We hope for his healthy return back next year.

Regenerative medicine is widely available for professional athletes but also to patients of CFFA and most likely will be utilized in the recovery process to facilitate the healing and shorten the duration of rehabilitation.

At Central Florida Foot and Ankle Center, LLC we use regenerative medicine daily to promote healing and shorten postoperative recuperation time. Call us today at 863-220-7286 to learn more about any of our procedures.
