Riyadh, Asharq Al-Awsat – The Saudi Arabian Royal Court has issued a statement revealing that the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz underwent a second successful back operation in New York yesterday. The statement added that the next step is for the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to begin physical therapy.

This second operation was to stabilize a number of vertebrae in King Abdullah’s spinal cord and complete the earlier surgery he underwent last week in accordance with the treatment plan recommended by the medical team

The first surgery at the Presbyterian Hospital in New York extracted the clot and corrected the disc. Days later, Saudi officials said King Abdullah was walking again and that the operation had been successful.
