MANHATTAN (PIX11) -- The hospital where U2 singer Bono was treated revealed details into the extent of his arm injury.

The singer underwent two surgeries during his stay at Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center -- one for his arm fracture and the other for his left hand, BBC reported.

The arm fracture required three metal plates and 18 screws to fix. The operation Sunday took five hours, the station reported. The following day, Bono had surgery for his hand.

Dean Lorich, orthopaedic trauma surgeon, told BBC the surgery would require physical therapy, but a full recovery is expected from the singer.

Bono injured himself "in a cycling spill in Central Park," the band said on their website Sunday. The incident caused U2 to cancel their week-long "Tonight Show" residency with Jimmy Fallon.
