Michael Schumacher’s doctor Philippe Menasche has spoken out about the Formula 1 Champions’ surgery.

The 50-year-old driver received stem cell therapy in September, however, there was a little information regarding the surgery, as local media reported it as “experimental”.

Menasche, speaking to La Repubblica, said: “There was an explosion in the attention our department received but the situation has already normalized. I do not perform miracles. My team and I are not doing an experiment, an abominable term that is not in line with a serious medical view.”

Schumacher’s health has been shrouded in secrecy ever since a near-fatal brain injury he suffered in 2013.

The seven-time F1 champion suffered severe head injuries on a family skiing holiday in the French Alps and has not been seen in public since.
