On the night of August 31,
2017, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP's Valentino Rossi had a successful operation on
the displaced fractures of the tibia and fibula of his right leg. The
MotoGP-star was hospitalised after an enduro accident the same evening.
According to a Yamaha press
release, following a medical examination at the 'Ospedale Civile di Urbino',
where he was initially diagnosed, the Italian was transported to the 'Azienda
Ospedaliero-Universitaria Ospedali Riuniti' in Ancona.
Upon arrival, he received
surgery between 2am - 3am by Dr. Raffaele Pascarella, Director of the
Orthopedics and Traumatology Division. During the surgery the fractures were
fixated using a metal pin - a locked intramedullary nail - without any
complications. Further medical updates will follow in due course.
“Yamaha would like to thank
the entire staff of the 'Ospedale Civile di Urbino' and 'Ospedali Riuniti di
Ancona' for their dedication and professional care,” the release added.
Meanwhile, Rossi in a
statement said, "The surgery went well. This morning, when I woke up, I
felt already good. I would like to thank the staff of the Ospedali Riuniti in
Ancona, and in particular Doctor Pascarella who operated on me. I'm very sorry
for the incident. Now I want to be back on my bike as soon as possible. I will
do my best to make it happen!"
