Repsol Honda Team rider Dani Pedrosa underwent surgery on his right wrist yesterday in the afternoon at the Hospital Universitari Dexeus in Barcelona, Spain. The surgery was to treat the injury suffered in a crash during Sunday’s race at the Argentina Grand Prix.
A 3D CT scan confirmed that Dani had suffered an intra-articular fracture of the right distal radius.
The fracture reduction and internal fixation with a titanium screw were carried out by Dr. Xavier Mir and his team from the Catalan Institute of Traumatology and Sports Medicine (ICATME) at the Dexeus Hospital.
The result of the operation was satisfactory, and Dani will undergo an evaluation of his progress in 48 hours. If the results are positive, he will be able to begin his rehabilitation on Saturday.
His participation in the Austin GP will be decided consequently.

The Repsol Honda Team will release information on Pedrosa’s progress as it becomes available.
Pedrosa crashed on the first lap of the chaotic Grand prix in Argentina. His comment after that was really short.
“There’s not much to say about the race. I think we did a great job during the weekend, and I was also riding very well. My race ended before I finished the first lap. Race Direction needs to look after every rider’s safety. Right now I have a lot of pain in my right wrist”, he said.
