the Spaniard just revealed about his shoulder after the Japanese GP race, at which time he had managed to secure the world title faster.
Dr Xavier Mir, one of the doctors assigned to repair Marquez’s shoulder with an injury to the left shoulder dislocation, said the operation on Tuesday was “more complicated than expected” because the level of joint damage was quite severe.
“I barely understand how he can win a world title like that,” explained Dr. Mir to Marca.
Dr. Mir also revealed that Marquez’s humeral bone, which connects the shoulder to the elbow is quite severe and requires open surgery on the bones and additional work to repair the ligament.
“One hundred percent success is not guaranteed by anyone, but after surgery, even with him falling asleep, we do a stability test, move the shoulders in all directions and it doesn’t dislocate,” Dr. Mir added after successfully repairing Marquez’s shoulder.
“That’s a good sign because when he wakes up, the muscles will hold the bones well,” the Spanish doctor stressed.
Marquez’s main target now is to get fit right away so he can be ready for the 2019 opening test which will take place at the Sepang circuit, on February 6-8. (DN/eV)
