Beach volleyball front man Martin Ermacora after his shoulder surgery
“Lukas Brandner and Dr. Ulrich Lanz conducted the surgery on my biceps tendon in Vienna two days ago, as my shoulder had been causing me severe problems over the past months and would not get better despite rehab and full rest. The surgery was successful and I’m already back home. The upcoming months won’t be easy — however, I will do everything to come back even stronger!!! Greets Martin”
