It was first diagnosed as pain from the external meniscus with stable knee and no drain. A magnetic resonance confirmed the partial lesion of the external meniscus.
On Thursday morning via arthroscopic the partial resection of the meniscus was done at a local hospital by one of Uruguay's leading specialists, Luis Francescoli. No other injury elements were detected in Suarez left knee.

The president of the Uruguayan Football Association Wilmar Valdez said that the kind of surgery to which Suarez was submitted has a quick evolution. However given Suarez physical condition if recovery is good, time won't be long.
In fifteen days he should be ready to play, but they are all speculations. We don't know whether he'll make it to the first, second or third match of the Cup qualifiers, said Valdez.
