Update 9/11/15 - 1:56 p.m.
Today, Dr. Chris Amann reported on Lana’s successful surgery, which took place on Thursday in Nashville, Tenn.
“Lana underwent open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of a left distal radius fracture with a volar plate,” he explained. “The fracture was stabilized and returned to its normal anatomic position during the surgery using the volar plate and screws. Lana did very well without any complications and is expected to make a full recovery.”

“During a training session [Sunday] afternoon, Lana had sustained an injury in the ring. We attended to her and noticed that she had a deformity of her wrist," said WWE's senior ringside physician Dr. Chris Amann.
Dr. Amann continued, “We obtained X-rays which showed a Colles’ fracture and [we put her] in a splint. Most of these Colles’ fractures do better surgically than non-surgically, especially in younger patients. Most likely this will require an operation, which will take her out of active competition.”
