Hulk Hogan Gets Surgery

My Dentist Left a Tack ...

In My Face!

Hulk Hogan's mouth is seriously messed up, after a dentist accidentally ripped out 50 stitches from his mouth.

Hulk tells TMZ ... in October he went in for dental surgery to get implants. The doctor performed a sinus graft -- placing a donor bone in the mouth to support the implant. Hulk then went to a cosmetic surgeon to begin the implant process. When the doc removed the mold in Hulk's mouth, it ripped out around 50 stitches from the donor bone procedure.

Hulk says he's been dealing with the problem ever since ... his mouth became infected and the antibiotics just weren't doing the trick.

So recently Hulk had a CAT scan, which revealed -- get this -- that one of the doctors left a metal tack in his mouth.

Last night, Hulk went to the hospital for surgery -- to remove the tack and clean out the mess.

Hulk tells us ... "They had to drill a f**king hole in my face!" 

And, Hulk says, he's already home and, "I have to have a meeting with my lawyers now." But it's not to sue the dentists. He still has legal issues with his ex-wife.

Why would he have that kind of surgery? It's not like there is any chance of improving the looks of that ugly face.

I feel really sorry for him...seriously. It's one thing after another. I think karma bit him on the butt, but this is getting to be a little too much...even for a guy like him.

I am a periodontist, and just to be clear, we use tacks and screws for bone grafting procedures all the time. They are very routinely left in place unless they need to be taken out for placement of dental implants. They help to keep the bone grafting materials in their correct position so that the graft can become normal bone during the healing process. Hulk has been seriously misinformed here. Also, the implant process normally starts months after bone grafting. I can't even imagine that they would ever use 50 stitches in the mouth for this kind of procedure, AND that every one of them would be ripped out by taking a mold. I think this article is way off - do some fact checking before you post this kind of stuff.

Kharma is showing its lovely head finally!

Can't stand him or his family. He loves his daughter in a most unnatural way and she loves him back the same disgusting way.

Maybe people should try being sympathetic to the fact that celebrities have health issues, too.
