MotoGP rookie Tito Rabat has undergone surgery to plate the left collarbone fracture he suffered at last weekend's Italian Grand Prix.

The Marc VDS Honda rider, who sustained the injured in Saturday's FP3 session, underwent a 90-minute procedure during which a titanium plate and eight screws were inserted.

A decision will be taken in the next few days regarding Rabat's participation in his home Catalunya round from June 3-5.

"A fractured collarbone was a high price for Tito to pay in what looked like an innocuous crash at the Italian Grand Prix. The good news is that the damage wasn't as extensive as first feared and that he was able to return to Barcelona quickly for treatment," said team principal Michael Bartholemy.

"The surgery, carried out by Doctors Mir and Marlet, was a success, but we need to confer with them again later this week before deciding with Tito at which race he will return. We know Tito will be keen to get back on the bike as soon as possible, but we want him to be fully fit before he does so."
