MotoGP king Marquez undergoes second surgery| MotoGP staff | MotoGP
Reigning MotoGP champ Marc Marquez has undergone a second surgery on his injured right arm.
The titanium plate used to fix the Spaniard’s right humerus was found to have suffered damage due to stress accumulation.
Dr Xavier Mir and his team at the Hospital Universitari Dexeus successfully replaced the plate and Marc Marquez will now stay in hospital for 48 hours before being discharged.
“Marc Márquez underwent surgery 13 days ago and today he returned to the operating room. The first operation was successful, what was not expected was that the plate was insufficient,” said Dr Mir.
“An accumulation of stress in the operated area has caused the plate to suffer some damage, so today the titanium plate has been removed and replaced by a new fixation.
“The rider has not felt pain during this period. He has always followed the medical advice given and the feeling from his body. Unfortunately, an over stress has caused this issue. Now we have to wait 48 hours to understand the recovery time.”
