Wilson has successful surgery on Wednesday night, details on what was done here

INDIANAPOLIS — Stefan Wilson was initially slated to have surgery on Wednesday morning. It was delayed until 1 p.m. ET. It was delayed again until 6 p.m. ET. That was the last delay. The team of doctors and surgeons did a great job on Wilson as Dreyer & Reinbold Racing happily announced on Thursday morning that Wilson had successful surgery.

 Following his incident during Monday’s practice at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Katherine Legge, Wilson was transported to IU Health Methodist Hospital for further tests. It was then that it was disclosed that Wilson suffered a fracture of the 12th thoracic vertebrae and would stay overnight at the hospital for further tests and observation.

Following further observations and tests on Tuesday, it was determined by the hospital’s medical staff that Wilson will require surgery to stabilize the fractured area. The surgery will take place on Wednesday May 24.
Wilson, driving the No. 24 Dreyer & Reinbold Racing/Cusick Motorsports/CareKeepers Chevrolet, fractured the 12th thoracic vertebrae in the Monday (May 22) practice incident. 
On Wednesday night (May 24) at IU Health Methodist Hospital, Stefan underwent surgery with a T10-T12 Posterior fusion and internal fixation of the fracture. 
The surgery was successful, and Stefan is in good spirits and ready to start recovery.

The Dreyer & Reinbold Racing/Cusick Motorsports team will have more information in the near future.
