Repsol rider has been discharged from hospital following operation and will continue his recovery at home
Marc Márquez underwent successful surgery today to treat the vision problem present in his right eye. The 2011 Rookie of the Year in the Moto2 class was operated on first thing Monday morning at the Outpatients Eye Surgery Unit of Barcelona’s Hospital Clinico, in a procedure performed by Doctor Bernardo Sánchez Dalmau.
The surgeon treated the rider for paralysis of the upper right oblique muscle, caused by trauma to the fourth right cranial nerve in Márquez’s crash last October 21st in free practice for the Malaysian Grand Prix. “The patient underwent the operation under local anaesthetic and sedation and the procedure went satisfactorily,” said Doctor Sánchez, who discharged the rider so as to allow him “to continue his recovery at home.”
