Fresh from his debut grand prix podium in Sunday's wet Moto3 grand prix, rookie Alex Rins underwent surgery in Barcelona on Monday to repair finger damage from a Saturday fall at Le Mans.
The Spaniard underwent surgery on the little finger of his right hand, in a procedure carried out by Dr. Xavier Mir at the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus de Barcelona.
Rins (Suter Honda) will remain in hospital for 24 hours under antibiotics.
Fellow Repsol-backed rider Marc Márquez (Suter), who suffered a heavy blow to his right hand when he crashed out of Sunday's Moto2 race, also underwent an examination at the facility.
Marquez, who lost the title lead by one-point to Pol Espargaro following the fall, lightly damaged his thumb in Sunday's spill and has been advised to rest the injury for a week.
Both Rins and Marquez will thus be fit for the fifth round of the 2012 world championships, in front of their home Spanish fans, at Catalunya in two weeks' time.
