will still have to wait some time to get back on a motorcycle.
The ilerdense pilot went through the operating room again this Thursday to undergo surgery, for the third time, on his right humerus due to "stagnation in the consolidation of his fracture that has not improved with a specific treatment of shock waves," according to the Repsol Honda team in a statement.
The intervention lasted for eight hours and was uneventful.
"Today the pilot has undergone surgery at the Ruber Internacional hospital in Madrid for a pseudoarthrosis of the right humerus," said the team, who explained that the surgery, carried out by a team made up of doctors Samuel Antuña , Ignacio Roger de Oña, Juan de Miguel, Aitor Ibarzabal and Andrea García Villanueva, consisted of "the removal of the previous plate and the placement of a new plate with an iliac crest graft, associated with a cortico-periosteal free flap" .
Injured on July 19
Although the team has not established a deadline for Márquez's recovery, everything indicates that he will be close to half a year without being able to compete.
The ilerdense will miss the entire preseason and probably the first races of the next World Cup, which will begin on March 28 in Qatar.
It is the third time that the six-time MotoGP world champion has to undergo surgery due to the rupture of the right humerus that occurred on July 19 after suffering a fall at the Spanish GP in Jerez.
Initially, a titanium plate with nails was implanted.
Although he tried to compete again the following weekend, in practice he realized that the fracture would have him more time away from the tracks.
On August 3, he was operated on again at the Dexeus University Hospital.
And since then little has been known about the evolution of the Honda rider, who has been seen on social media following the evolution of his brother in the championship.
