Serbian basketball player Simanic was removed during World Cup kidney

Serbian national basketball player Borisa Simanic had a kidney removed during the World Cup in Manila. This was necessary after there were complications during an operation, as the Serbian association KSS announced on Monday. The reason for the medical intervention was a situation during the Serbs’ first World Cup match in the Philippine capital against South Sudan.

Basketball player Borisa Simanic had to be operated on twice after being hit in the kidney area

The 25-year-old Simanic was hit in the kidney area by an opponent and could not be used again in the 115:83 victory. The professional from the Spanish Club Basket Zaragoza was taken to hospital and operated on for the first time on the night of August 30th/31st. Simanic lost a lot of blood in the process, explained coach Svetislav Pesic.

After the operation, problems were identified that made a further operation necessary. The organ was finally removed on Sunday.

“We expect and wish that the postoperative course will go smoothly,” said Serbian team doctor Dragan Radovanovic in a statement distributed by the association on platform X, formerly Twitter.
