Formula One legend Michael Schumacher receiving treatment in Paris hospital

Formula One legend Michael Schumacher receiving treatment in Paris hospital

According to French newspaper Le Parisien, via Motorsport.com, the F1 legend has now been shifted to a Paris hospital to receive treatment from a renowned heart surgeon who specializes in stem cell treatments.

Le Parisien's report goes on to suggest that Schumacher will receive stem cells to obtain an anti-inflammatory effect throughout his system on Tuesday.

The news of Michael's treatment in Paris comes just a month after his former boss at Ferrari opened up about his recovery.

Schumacher, 50, and his family have kept his condition and treatment very private since he was seriously injured in a skiing accident in the French Alps nearly six years ago.

Schumacher arrived at the Hôpital Européen Georges-Pompidou in Paris and transferred to the Heart Failure Surgery Unit overseen by Professor Philippe Menasche, a prominent cardiovascular surgeon and "pioneer of cell therapy".

It left him in a medically-induced coma after suffering severe head injuries.

There was no comment either by Schumacher's long-time manager, Sabine Kehn. It has been reported that this is the third time that the seven-time Formula One world champion has been treated for this, the first two times taking place this past spring.

Fans revere the determined German and his name was chanted at the Monza circuit last weekend for Ferrari's most successful Formula One driver Schumacher, with his son Mick, who is part of the Ferrari Driver Academy, present.

The family put out a statement earlier this year on the occasion of Schumacher's 50 birthday and revealed that they are doing everything possible to help him get better but it's the family's wish to keep information regarding his health private.

"Michael is in the best hands and is well looked after in his house".

"I'm always careful with such statements, but it's true", Mr Todt said. "I saw the race together with Michael Schumacher at his home in Switzerland", he explained.
