Dani Pedrosa has operation in Barcelona

The Spanish rider has had a screw removed from his left hand during surgery at the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus of Barcelona.

Repsol Honda rider Dani Pedrosa had an operation on Wednesday to remove a screw from his left hand, which was inserted to aid his recovery from a fracture. The procedure has also freed Pedrosa’s extensor tendons, allowing him to improve the mobility of his left wrist.

Head of the Hand Surgery Unit of the Orthopaedics Department of the USP Institut Universitari Dexeus, Doctor Xavier Mir, performed the operation.

Pedrosa was discharged from the hospital on Thursday, and should be able to start his full recovery in two weeks, according to Doctor Mir.
