Six-time MotoGP champion Marc Márquez returned to the Ruber clinic in Madrid six weeks after the third upper arm surgery. Honda then reported a satisfactory result.
Honda last commented on Marc Marquez’s health on December 13th. As is well known, the 27-year-old Spaniard had an operation on his right upper arm for a pseudarthrosis on December 3rd for the third time since July: In an eight-hour procedure, a bone transplant was performed from the iliac crest in the Ruber clinic in Madrid and a new titanium plate was inserted.
Because an infection was found during the operation, the Repsol Honda star then had to start antibiotic treatment. He has been back home in Cervera since December 13th. At Christmas, his little brother Alex Márquez spoke in an interview of a recovery time of three months, which could double with small complications.
On Thursday evening there was finally another official update: Marc Márquez underwent a check-up at the “Hospital Ruber Internacional” in Madrid today – exactly six weeks after the operation.
Honda reported a “satisfactory clinical and radiological development” at the time. The brief statement on how to proceed further: “Márquez will continue with the specific antibiotic treatment and the functional rehabilitation program that is adapted to his clinical situation.”
There is still no schedule for the comeback of the eight-time world champion.
