Reigning MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez was operated on this morning at the Universitario Dexeus Hospital in Barcelona, to treat a fracture to the fifth metacarpal of his left hand. The Repsol Honda rider suffered the fracture on Tuesday while mountain bike training on the outskirts of Cervera. The operation was carried out by Dr. Xavier Mir, Head of the Hand and Upper Extremities department of the Universitario Dexeus Hospital, who declared the operation a success. If post-operation recovery goes as expected, Marquez should be fine to ride in the Japanese Grand Prix, which takes place in 10 days’ time at Motegi.
After the surgery, Dr. Mir stated: “We have operated on Marc Marquez to treat a torsion fracture of the fifth metacarpal of his left hand. The surgery consisted of a reduction and internal fixation of the bone, through screws for compression and a neutralizing titanium plate with six holes. After the insertion, the soft tissue has been closed up and we have placed a protective bandage around the finger, supporting it with the adjacent finger. Marc will remain in hospital for 24 hours, and in 48 hours will begin functional rehabilitation.”
