BARCELONA, Spain – With his most successful MotoGP season to date complete, six-time premier class champion Marc Marquez elected to undergo surgery at the Hospital Universitari Dexeus-Quiron on Wednesday.
The operation was performed by Dr. Xavier Mir, Dr. Victor Marlet and Dr. Teresa Marlet, all part of ICATME (the Catalan Institute of Traumatology and Sports Medicine).
After experiencing some discomfort with his right shoulder, and after his Monday crash at the Jerez open test, the Repsol Honda Team rider elected to have the operation as a preventative measure after medical consultation.
The operation is similar to the one performed on his left shoulder at the end of 2018, but less aggressive in nature.
Marquez will be discharged within the next 48 hours. He will then begin his recovery and winter training in preparation for the Sepang test at home in Cervera.
