Neil Patrick Harris Undergoes Surgery After Injuring Hand on Vacation

Neil Patrick Harris is on the mend after recently undergoing surgery!

The 46-year-old actor took to Instagram on Tuesday (October 15) to reveal that he had to have surgery after two spines from a sea urchin got infected after getting stuck in his hand during a recent trip to Croatia.

“Had surgery today. I tripped and hand planted onto a sea urchin almost two months ago while climbing rocky cliffs in Croatia,” Neil shared. “Most of the tiny spines I dug out myself, but two refused to leave and one got infected. Turns out it pierced through a tendon (see ultrasound video). Well, thanks to the surgical talents of Dr. Dan Polatsch and his team, I’m officially urchin free and on the mend. Only drawback – having to wear this massive hand elevating contraption for the foreseeable future (see third pic). All in all, though, I have to say: uni is still delicious.”
