Ghanaian international, Raphael Dwamena, on Thursday, January 23, successfully went through a heart surgery in Zaragoza, Spain.
The 26-year-old was advised by Spanish doctors to hold for some time, a situation which also forced Zaragoza to prematurely terminate his contract.
A statement released by Zaragoza read: “Real Zaragoza footballer Raphael Dwamena has been successfully intervened at the Miguel Servet University Hospital in Zaragoza of his heart problem. The operation, which has been developed by the medical team of the Arrhythmias Unit of the health centre, coordinated by Doctor Asso, in the presence of the Head of Medical Services of Real Zaragoza, Doctor De Los Martires, has consisted of two phases. The first has been the conduct of an electrophysiological study and, subsequently, the implantation of an ICD (Implantable Automatic Defibrillator), which protects you in case of severe arrhythmias.”
The development gives the former FC Zurich man hope of enjoying the game soon.
