After being operated on, the journalist Jorge Lanata (60) is evolving favorably and remains hospitalized for observation at the

Favaloro Hospital

, according to a new medical report released by the medical center at noon this Wednesday.

"The Favaloro Foundation University Hospital informs that Mr. Jorge Ernesto Lanata is

progressing satisfactorily

after the laparoscopic surgical procedure that was performed on Monday, August 30," can be read in the brief statement.

"He will

remain hospitalized

for

the next few hours

for an adequate evolutionary control, planning his discharge soon," adds the document, which bears the signatures of doctors Pablo Raffaele and Matías Fosco.

Although the operation to which Lanata was subjected was this Monday, it only transpired on Tuesday morning, with the news of the

successful result

.

Meanwhile, from the journalist's environment, they had explained to

Clarín

that the scheduled intervention "went well" and that it was a low complexity procedure.

The medical report of this Wednesday, September 1 on Lanata's health.

In May, the host of El Trece and radio Miter

spent a week hospitalized in Miami

, where he had traveled with his girlfriend, the lawyer Elba Marcovecchio, to film a documentary and get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

On that occasion, after registering a few lines of fever, Lanata underwent a swab which was negative.

Then, he was referred to the prestigious

Mount Sinai Medical Center

in that city of Florida, where it was determined that he had a

urinary infection

.

Fortunately, the doctors decided that his condition was not serious.

However, they arranged for him to stay for a week under observation due to his

complicated

health

history

.

It is that, two months before traveling to the city of Miami, Lanata had been operated on for a

cardiac arrhythmia and arterial disease

.

That intervention was carried out at the Favaloro Foundation, where he underwent angioplasty on his left leg "and subsequent revascularization due to his

peripheral arterial disease

."

One day after being operated, the host of Journalism for all (El Trece, Sundays at 10 pm) received the

medical discharge

to continue with "his treatment at home."

"It was kind of complicated, but now I'm fine.

I've survived once more

. I have some pending studies, but I'm fine," he said at that time.

Jorge Lanata's health

The renowned journalist

went through several hospitalizations in recent years

.

In August 2020, for example, he was operated, also at the Favaloro Foundation, for a boil.

It was a

"scheduled laparoscopic surgical procedure"

, the medical part of which also had the signatures of Matías Fosco and Pablo Raffaele, the same professionals who provided details of their health in the last hours.

In 2019, meanwhile, he was hospitalized for 11 days due to a picture of

gastroenteritis

.

And weeks later, he suffered from diabetic neuropathy.

The journalist's most important surgical intervention was in 2015, when he

received a kidney transplant

.

This operation represented the first crossover kidney transplant in Latin America.

It is that his ex-wife, Sara Stewart Brown, donated a kidney to a young man so that her husband could receive his mother's.
