Malaysian MotoGP: Bradl surgery a success

Stefan Bradl has undergone surgery for the ankle fracture suffered in Saturday practice for the Malaysian MotoGP at Sepang.

The Honda LCR rider underwent the procedure at the Kuala Lumpur Sports Medicine Centre on Saturday evening.

“We are happy about the results of this operation; Stefan is doing well and now it will be a case of starting the recovery process on Monday,” said team manager Lucio Cecchinello.

“He will work with the physiotherapists until we sit down once again with the MotoGP Medical Team on Thursday at Phillip Island, when we will be able to form a much clearer prognosis.”

The injury was diagnosed as “a transversal fracture of the right malleolus”, and the operation involved inserting two screws to knit the bone together.

The procedure was performed by both Dr. Low Tze Choong and Dr. Alberto Busilacchi, the Clinica Mobile's orthopaedic surgeon. The surgery was supervised by the MotoGP Medical Team member Dr. Enric Caceres.

Bradl will rest up in hospital overnight and will be able to leave the medical centre on Sunday afternoon.

Such a crock. Anathesia hasn't worn off yet, and they proclaim it a SUCCESS!!! Give it several weeks. No infectionn & the lad can walk with no pain, then strike up the band and make your proclamations. I do wish Bradl the best, sincerely. He broke his ankle and acted as if nothing happened. as the other side of the pillow.
