Rabat undergoes successful surgery on right hand

 In Moto2, News

On Tuesday afternoon Tito Rabat has successfully undergone surgery on his right hand. He was operated by Dr. Xavier Mir, head of the Pathology Unit of the Hand and Upper Extremity Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Orthopedics and Sport Medicine at Dexeus USP.

The Blusens-STX rider suffered a crash in the last lap of the third free practice for the Grand Prix of France, taking place last weekend at the Circuit of Le Mans, in which he injured the little finger of his right hand. He underwent treatment for an abrasion (burn) with loss of tendon substance and skin loss on the fifth finger of his right hand and a tendon graft and skin graft was necessary.
To prevent possible infection Tito Rabat will only be released from hospital in 48 hours and is expected to begin functional recovery within 10 days and prepare to participate in the next round of the Championship, the Grand Prix of Catalunya, which will be held at Montmelo on the weekend of June 5th.

TITO RABAT: “I’m still a bit groggy from the anesthesia but calm because I heard that the operation has gone very well. I know that I now need a few days of rest to avoid complications on the hand and then I need to do recover to get into the best possible condition for the Montmelo race. I also know that next week I can’t participate in the test with the team at MotorLand Aragon, but now the most important thing is that this injury will heal completely. I hate to miss these test days, but first things first. I want to thank Dr. Mir and his entire team, because I am being treated very well and they have done a great job.”
