Why did Bert Kreischer have surgery?

Following his recent post on social media, some are curious to know the reason behind Bert Kreischer’s arm surgery.

Bert Kreischer previously addressed why he had surgery in an episode of his joint podcast 2 Bears, 1 Cave with fellow comedian Tom Segura.

In episode 92 of the podcast which was published 2 August, Kreischer explained he needed surgery on his left arm following a fall. He said: “I can’t go into too much detail, but I fell. I fell acting in a movie.

“I was doing all my own acting, and I fell, and kind of tweaked my elbow, and I thought it was fine, and I continued to live my life like it was fine, I thought it was healed.

“Then one day, I caused more damage, and I heard three pops, and I tore 59% of the tendons in my left elbow, attaching my tricep.”

Kreischer had surgery on his arm at the end of last month (29 July) and at the time shared a snap in his surgical robes on Instagram.
