Dani Pedrosa has undergone his second surgery in as many months after opting to have his broken collarbone operated on.

The Spaniard fractured the right collarbone in an accident during the French Grand Prix at Le Mans following an altercation with fellow Honda rider Marco Simoncelli.

Visiting the Teknon Medical Centre in Barcelona, it was initially uncertain as to whether Pedrosa would allow the injury to heal by itself or undergo surgery, but on the advice of doctors, he chose the latter.

Placing his trust in Dr. Joaquim Casa?as and Dr. C?sar Garc?a-Madrid once again, a titanium plate was inserted to fix the fracture in the collarbone. It comes just six weeks after a plate was removed from his left collarbone to decompress the subclavian artery.

Pedrosa is expected to begin his rehabilitation in the next few days, though his participation in the upcoming Catalunya Grand Prix on June 5th remains very much in doubt.
