Report: F1 great Michael Schumacher treated at Paris hospital

Michael Schumacher has not been seen in public since his December 2013 skiing accident in France.

Seven-time Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher is in a Paris hospital.

Schumacher, who has not been seen or heard from publicly since sustaining brain injuries in a 2013 skiing accident in France, was admitted to the Hôpital Européen Georges-Pompidou on Monday, according to Le Parisien newspaper.

The report said the 50-year-old Schumacher is receiving treatment in a cardiovascular surgery unit from professor Philippe Menasche, a specialist surgeon in heart failure cell therapy. Menasche, a pioneer in engineered heart tissue, is known for his groundbreaking stem cell research.

Le Parisien said Schumacher’s treatment involves stem cell infusion for an anti-inflammatory effect. Schumacher is expected to return to his home in Switzerland on Wednesday.

The report said Schumacher arrived along with an entourage of about 10 people, including his own doctor, Gerard Saillant.

Schumacher has reportedly received the stem cell treatment on at least two other occasions. His latest visit was originally scheduled for July, but was postponed for health reasons.
