MotoGP rookie Jack Miller has become the second LCR Honda rider to undergo post-season surgery to remove metalwork from his shoulder.

While team-mate Cal Crutchlow went under the knife shortly after the Valencia test, Moto3 title runner-up Miller waited until today (Tuesday) in order to take part in a private test at Sepang last week.

The Australian teenager had four loose screws and a plate removed from an old right collarbone injury, during an operation performed by the MotoGP medical team's renowned Dr. Xavier Mir in Barcelona.

"I am really happy to finally have this operation to take out the titanium in my shoulder which is no longer needed," Miller said. "The operation was a success and it was not long 'till I felt very comfortable. I hope to have a quick recovery and focus all my attention on working for the 2015 season.

"These recovery days are the perfect time for me to see how we can come back stronger in 2015. I would like to say a massive thank you to Doctor Mir and all his staff for their excellent work and their care."

The first MotoGP test of 2015 takes place at Sepang in February.
