Dani Pedrosa discharged from hospital after successful collarbone operation


The Repsol Honda rider has left the Hospital Universitario Quirón Dexeus, where yesterday he had a plate and 13 screws removed from his right collarbone by Dr. Xavier Mir.

Following the conclusion of the 2013 season and the first days of testing with the 2014 prototype, Dani Pedrosa has used a brief break in his schedule to undergo surgery in Barcelona. The Repsol Honda rider was successfully operated on yesterday, in a procedure to remove osteosynthetic materials inserted onto his right collarbone in 2011. The surgery took place at the Universitario Quirón Dexeus Hospital, and was carried out by Dr. Xavier Mir, Director of the Microsurgery and Surgery department at the facility. After the removal of the metal plate and thirteen screws, Dani was today discharged from hospital. He will be inactive for two weeks, before beginning a functional rec overy programme.

"I’ve undergone surgery to remove the plate and thirteen screws from my right collarbone operation in 2011, which I required as a result of the crash I had that season. We will have to wait a few days to see how everything develops and, above all, give it a little time. That’s why I chose this break in our schedule to undergo the operation. Now I need to rest up, but I can’t wait to be fully recovered soon"
