Worcester Warriors have confirmed that Michael Fatialofa has been moved out of St Mary's Hospital in London after a spine surgery.
The 27-year-old has been out of action since sustaining a serious neck injury during the Gallagher Premiership game against Saracens played at Allianz Park earlier this month.
Fatialofa was forced to undergo a surgery 'to relieve the pressure on his spinal cord' and now has been moved from ICU to the Major Trauma Unit at St Mary's Hospital. The club also expressed hope in transferring Fatialofa to Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire which is renowned for treatment on spinal injuries.
"Warriors lock Michael Fatialofa has been moved from the Intensive Care Unit at St Mary's Hospital in London to the Major Trauma Unit at the hospital," read a Worcester statement.
"Michael has been diagnosed with a spinal contusion, a serious condition which causes compression on the spine. He has undergone surgery to relieve the pressure on his spinal cord caused by bruising and swelling.
"Michael's condition remains serious but he is making good progress and he is showing encouraging signs of improvement.
"Warriors have set up a special email account - firstname.lastname@example.org - so that Michael and his wife, Tatiana, can receive messages of support from well-wishers."
