Dani Pedrosa will go under the knife for the third time in as many months as doctors continue in their bid to help the rider with his rehabilitation from a collarbone injury.

The Spaniard first underwent surgery for the collarbone break in the wake of sustaining the injury in an accident during the French Grand Prix last month.

Now the Repsol Honda rider will undergo surgery once more to fix a fragment of bone that was removed during the first operation in an effort to speed up the healing process.

Pedrosa, who also underwent surgery to relieve pressure in his subclavian artery in April, has already missed two rounds of the 2011 MotoGP World Championship and admitted he is uncertain for the upcoming Assen TT.
