Marc Marquez completes positive post-op medical check
Two weeks after undergoing surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, Marc Marquez has undergone his first post-operative medical check. The assessment took place at the Ruber Internacional Hospital in Madrid with a medical team consisting of Dr. Joaquin Sánchez Sotelo, Dr. Samuel Antuña and Dr. Angel Cotorro. The feedback on the initial progress after surgery on Marquez’s right humerus was positive.
The medical team have recommended to continue with controlled exercises for the next four weeks. The eight-time World Champion is scheduled to undergo his next medical check in four weeks.
“Today I had a medical check in Madrid and the doctors are happy. My arm is immobilized, and it will be like this for the next few weeks. My feelings so far are positive because I have no pain, this is very important. It allows me to rest and follow the doctors’ rules: a healthy diet, drink a lot and try to hang out with our dogs because it is important that the body is not inactive. The most important thing from my doctors is that I have to be calm and patient.”
Dr. Sanchez Sotelo
MD PhD, Chair of the Division of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Mayo Clinic.
"Today, Marc Marquez underwent a medical check-up in Madrid with Dr. Antuña, Dr. Cotorro and myself, confirming a positive evolution of the surgical wound. Starting today, he will begin performing controlled exercises of passive mobilization of the shoulder and elbow until a new revision in four weeks.”
