During the operation the medics inserted a screw into Stas’s cheekbone. The screw will hold the broken bone. According to the medic of skull-surgical department of Horadnia regional hospital Aliena Klachko he will also have to wear a special gypsous hat. Eight months after the operation the one half of his face will stay motionless. The medics wouldn’t have had to do this operation, if they could give Stas treatment a week before.
