Successful collarbone surgery for Pedrosa

Doctors declare the surgery, which was to fix a small fragment of bone, a success, though Pedrosa remains doubtful to return at Assen.
Dani Pedrosa will enter into another stage of rehabilitation after undergoing a second surgery on his fractured collarbone in Spain.

The Repsol Honda rider underwent an operation to fix, by compression osteosynthesis, a small fragment of bone that had dislodged during the rehabilitation process. It is a technique that allows for faster consolidation and minimises the resting time.

The surgery was carried at the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus by Dr. Xavier Mir, Chief of the Pathology Unit of the Hand of Dexeus USP, and Dr. Cesar Garcia Madrid, vascular specialist of the Institute Planell at Teknon Medical Center.

Declaring it a success, Dr. Javier Mir is confident Pedrosa will be able to begin rehabilitating within 48 hours of the surgery.

"We believe the surgery was successful as we were able to fix the fragment of bone of his collarbone in a very stable way and because of this we are confident that in 48 hours it will be possible to begin rehabilitation of his right shoulder".

Pedrosa is still undecided whether he will participate in the upcoming Assen TT, having already skipped the Catalan and British rounds of the MotoGP series.

Really is sad these armchair "fans" calling DP a wuss. Ok physically he may break more often than some, but his mental toughness and pan threshold leave me in awe. The catalogue of injuries hes had but jumps back on the bike and is fast straight away. Not the jolliest character but a softy he aint!
