Hayley Erbert, the dancer and wife of Dancing With The Stars judge Derek Hough, underwent an emergency craniectomy after experiencing symptoms while on a dance tour with her husband.
In an Instagram post Thursday, Hough revealed that his wife of only three months “became disoriented and was taken to the hospital” while on their Symphony of Dance tour. A craniectomy is a type of surgery to remove a portion of the skull to help relieve extra pressure on the brain.
“At the end of last night’s tout performance in Washington, D.C., my wife Hayley became disoriented and was taken to the hospital,” he wrote. “She was diagnosed with a cranial hematoma from a burst blood vessel and required an emergency craniectomy. She is in stable condition.”

“I want to thank the first responders and medical personnel who have cared for and continue to care for her. I ask for your prayers and positivity during this time,” Hough added.

On Tuesday, Hough helped to crown Xochitl Gomez as the season 32 winner of DWTS. Hough’s instagram is full of positive thoughts and well wishes from fellow pros and celebrities from the show.
