Pedrosa undergoes stem cell treatment on collarbone

MotoGP™ Legend was operated on in Barcelona due to his right collarbone non-union fracture

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing test rider Dani Pedrosa has undergone surgery at the Barcelona Teknon Medical Centre due to his right collarbone non-union fracture (lack of consolidation), diagnosed at the beginning of January. Doctors Soler and Orozco have performed a reconstructive surgery consisting in the fracture stabilisation on the Spanish rider, using osteosynthesis material and a contribution of bio-graft with a dose of forty million of autologous stem cells, an Advanced Therapy drug authorised by the Spanish Medicine Agency (Agencia Española de Medicamentos y Productos Sanitarios AEMPS).

The three-time World Champion and MotoGP™ Legend is now beginning a period of convalescence and recovery under medical supervision. Doctors attending Pedrosa estimate his recovery will take around three months.

Pedrosa is optimistic and hopes his rehabilitation process will be positive until his full recovery is achieved: "At the moment, my mind is set on overcoming the current situation to continue working on the development of the KTM. Much to my regret, I have not been able to participate in the pre-season tests in Malaysia, but I am following closely the work of the KTM Racing Factory. I hope to be with them soon on the track."
