Michael Schumacher is reportedly in hospital for cell therapy surgery from one of the world's leading surgeons.
The seven-time F1 world champion is said to have been transported to Paris’ Georges-Pompidou hospital earlier this week ahead of treatment.
Schumacher is being seen by Philippe Menasche, a man who is claimed to be a 'pioneer in cell surgery against heart failure'.
The German's condition remains unknown over five years since his tragic ski accident in the French Alps almost six years ago.
Schumacher, who turned 50 in January, was left with severe head injuries and had to be placed in a medically-induced coma for a number of months.
He is understood to have been receiving medical care at the family home near Lake Geneva in Switzerland, but updates regarding his health have been few and far between.
But reports in France on Monday claimed that he had arrived in Paris in an ambulance registered in Geneva, Switzerland, to undergo surgery.
Le Parisien claims that in the treatment, Schumacher will receive stem cells to obtain an anti-inflammatory effect throughout his body.
It is claimed that the treatment will begin on Tuesday and he will leave the hospital on Wednesday.
Updates on Schumacher and his condition have been few and far between, but it is suggested that the treatment has been regular.
The report says that the former Ferrari star has already been treated in the hospital twice earlier this year.
Schumacher is being seen by experienced medic Professor Menasche.
The 69-year-old is best known for performing the world’s first embryonic cell transplant on a patient with heart failure in 2014 and specialises in stem cell research.
It has been previously claimed that Schumacher is unable to walk or even properly communicate with his family and friends.
Reports have stated that a 15-strong medical team looks after Schumacher at a special medical facility built in his home in Switzerland, with his health care bills thought to have exceeded £20million.
Earlier this year, his former Ferrari boss, Jean Todt, revealed he had been to visit Schumacher at his home in Switzerland this year, declaring that the pair watched F1 together.
Todt declared: "I'm always careful with such statements, but it's true. I saw the race together with Michael Schumacher at his home in Switzerland.
