Capirossi undergoes Surgery
Rizla Suzuki racer Loris Capirossi has undergone a successful operation to repair the damage caused to his right hand in the crash at last Sunday’s Misano Grand Prix.
Capirossi had a 90-minute procedure to reconstruct the bone in his little finger and further work to re-attach the severed tendon in the same digit. The operation was performed by Dr. Oliviero Soragni at the San Marino hospital on Monday afternoon. Capirossi is now back home in Monte Carlo where he will begin his recuperation and healing period.
The experienced Italian is expected to make a full recovery from the injury and should be able to regain complete use in the damaged finger. It is not yet confirmed whether Capirossi will be able to compete in the next round of the MotoGP World Championship at Aragon in Spain on Sunday 19th September 2010.
