Jay Leno's Surgeon On if Comedian Will Suffer Permanent Damage After 'Serious' Burn Injuries
Jay Leno sustained significant burns to his face, hands and chest in an accident on Saturday. But while the legendary comedian's already undergone at least one surgery and will undergo another procedure later this week, the former Tonight Show host's surgeon says he expects Leno to make a full recovery. Dr. Peter Grossman, a renowned expert in the comprehensive treatment of burn injuries and director of the prestigious Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital in Los Angeles, spoke to ET's Will Marfuggi about the 72-year-old's status and the road to recovery. Leno sustained "significant injuries" in the accdent and while he doesn't want to minimize the seriousness of said injuries, Grossman says he also wants to emphasize that Leno's "doing very well." "He's got a very strong attitude. He's a very strong individual," Grossman tells ET. "And he's a person who really is looking to move forward, to try to find a way to get past this episode of his life and to get back to what he normally likes to do, which is to be out there and entertain and be with the people. I think at some point soon he'll get there, but I've had to tell him that, for the time being, he needs to sit back and take care of Jay."
