“SE”: foreign doctors can participate in the prosthetics of the figure skater Kostomarov
Olympic champion Roman Kostomarov delighted a large number of fans a few days ago and contacted him personally, writing an appeal for the first time after his hospitalization. However, the process of rescuing the skater is still far from complete, experts from abroad may be involved in the process.
“We have a lot of work ahead”
Kostomarov was taken to intensive care with pneumonia on the night of January 10. In early 2023, part of Ilya Averbukh performed at the ice show, which took place outdoors in severe frosts. The athlete did not go to the doctors for some time, but the situation worsened sharply. He had several amputations due to the developed necrosis. Later, it was reported that a part of the brain was affected, bleeding and hematoma formed.
Since then, there has been a lot of conflicting information. Someone claimed that Kostomarov was recovering, someone, on the contrary, described the situation as critical, and then the fans were preparing for the worst-case scenario. But Averbukh, who was in constant contact with Roman’s family in early May, spoke about the positive dynamics in the skater’s situation. And on May 8, Kostomarov first came into contact on social networks during his illness.

Will not go abroad but foreigners will help
Russian Sports Minister Oleg Matytsin also expressed his support for the athlete and wished Roman more strength. Although clearly positive, it was clear that the healing process would be difficult and lengthy. Shortly after that, Moskovsky Komsomolets informed that the skater was allegedly secretly discharged from the hospital and is currently abroad. An RIA Novosti source familiar with the situation denied this information.
“Kostomarov did not leave the hospital. We have no plans to go abroad, Russian doctors can cope on their own,” the source said.
This was also confirmed by Kostomarov’s wife, Oksana Domnina, who told RBC that her husband was continuing treatment in Kommunarka and that leaving Russia was not planned or discussed. But foreign doctors may also be involved in the restoration of the Olympic champion, Sport Express reported. According to the publication, foreign specialists will participate in the prosthetics. Currently, doctors are studying centers in Russia for the next stage of treatment. At the same time, while the skater is not ready for surgery, doctors will only be able to continue wearing prosthetics without “the slightest risk to health.”
