New York - A New York City doctor says U2 singer Bono suffered multiple fractures and had to have two surgeries after his weekend bicycle accident.


Orthopedic trauma surgeon Dr Dean Lorich says Bono was trying to avoid another cyclist on Sunday.

Bono arrived at a Manhattan hospital with a facial fracture involving his left eye socket, his left shoulder blade fractured in three places and a left elbow fracture that broke the skin.

Lorich says Bono underwent a five-hour surgery on his elbow in which three plates and 18 screws were inserted on Sunday night. Bono had another surgery to repair a fracture to his left little finger on Monday.

Lorich says Bono will need therapy but a full recovery is expected.

U2 says it'll have to reschedule a planned week long appearance on NBC's Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
