Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo shared a health update via his recent post on Instagram. The 17-year-old actor undergoes an emergency surgery which will be his No. 4 already.

Gaten Matarazzo: health issues

Despite his very young age, 17-year-old Gaten Matarazzo suffers from a rare condition called cleidocranial dysplasia. The condition affects bones and teeth growth and development.

In the past, Gaten underwent three surgeries to treat his condition. The actor used to share regular health updates on social media.

A year ago, Gaten Matarazzo opened up about the struggles and inconveniences he’s facing due to his diagnosis:

Most of my teeth are still baby teeth. Teeth affect livelihood. They affect the way you eat, the way you breathe, the way you speak.

Surgery No.4

On Wednesday, the Stranger Things star took to Instagram to reveal some important news – he undergoes surgery No.4. Gaten shared a selfie from a hospital bed and captioned:

Surgery number 4! This is a big one!

The actor didn’t explain why this surgery is “big one.” Hopefully, Gaten meant to say that it was his last surgery on his way to recovery.

Following Gaten’s announcement, multiple fans of the young actor rushed to Instagram to support the star.
