Marc Marquez visited in Madrid: ok, now the second phase begins

Two weeks after the fourth operation, Marc Marquez was examined by doctor Sotelo: “I have no pain in my arm”. Now off to passive mobilization, next checkup in a month. And Puig awaits him for the last races of the 2022 MotoGP World Championship

One step at a time, but this time with the certainty that after the fourth operation, the arm will return to the one it was before. Two weeks after undergoing surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, Marc Marquez underwent his first post-operative medical check-up. The visit took place at the Ruber Internacional Hospital in Madrid, the same where he had operated for the third time in December 2020, with a medical team composed of Dr. Joaquin Sánchez Sotelo, the doctor who operated on him in the USA, by Dr. Samuel Antuña and Dr. Angel Cotorro. Feedback on initial progress after Marquez’s right humerus surgery was positive. “The doctors are satisfied. My arm is immobilized and it will be like this for the next few weeks – says Marquez in the press release issued just now by Honda -. My feelings so far are positive because I have no pain, and this is very important. It allows me to rest and follow the doctors’ rules: a healthy diet, drink a lot and try to be with our dogs because it is important that the body is not inactive. The most important thing the doctors told me is that I have to be calm and patient. ”

control within 4 weeks

Words confirmed by Dr. Sotelo. “Marquez underwent a medical check-up in Madrid with doctor Antuña, doctor Cotorro and me, confirming a positive evolution of the surgical wound. Starting today, he will begin performing controlled passive shoulder and elbow range-of-motion exercises until a new revision in four weeks. “

Return at the end of the season

A positive evolution that reinforces the idea that Marc can return to the track for the last GP of the season, as also speculated by Alberto Puig, Honda team manager, at Sachsenring. “Can we expect it on the track before the end of the season? Yes, but when I don’t know – Puig told Dazn Spain -. As the doctor has already said, we will see him again in the saddle when the bone has consolidated and we will see with CT scan or x-ray that there are no further obstacles to his return. It would be very important if he manages to get back on the bike, at the end of the season we have fundamental tests in view of 2023 ”.
