Hayley Erbert, the wife of Dancing With The Stars judge Derek Hough, recently underwent an emergency craniectomy after experiencing concerning symptoms during their Symphony of Dance tour. Hough took to Instagram to reveal the news and share the details of the alarming situation.
During the tour, Erbert suddenly became disoriented, prompting her husband to take immediate action. She was quickly taken to the hospital, where doctors diagnosed her with a cranial hematoma resulting from a burst blood vessel. In order to relieve pressure on her brain, Erbert required urgent surgery, known as a craniectomy, which involves the removal of a portion of the skull.
Hough expressed immense gratitude towards the first responders and medical professionals who swiftly attended to Erbert. He also requested prayers and positivity from their fans during this challenging time. The couple got married in August, and just a month later, they embarked on their dance tour.
Derek Hough, the Emmy Award-winning choreographer and dancer, is best known for his role as a judge on Dancing With The Stars.
