Recently, Pope Francis has been suffering from a knee ailment that has curbed his mobility.

The Vatican “asked a group of specialists if we could help the pope” with treatment.

They recruited a team which includied José María Villalón, a sports medicine physician and head doctor for the Atlético de Madrid soccer team.

In a radio interview this week, he called Pope Francis “a very nice and very stubborn patient.”

“There are surgical procedures that he does not want. We have to offer him more conservative treatments so that he will agree to them.”

Villalón explained the knee ailment started to affect other joints as well.

“Sometimes it starts with a joint with osteoarthritis and other joints deteriorate because they are overloaded. We are trying to make sure that this does not advance and that things get better.”

Although he was “nervous” at first to treat the pope, he said they bonded because “he likes soccer.”

Pray for the health of Pope Francis!

🙏
