MD PhD, Chair of the Division of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Mayo Clinic.

“Today, we had the opportunity to operate on the right humerus of Mr Marc Marquez. The completed procedure in approximately three hours. Despite the complexity of the procedure. The outcome was satisfactory.

Surgery consisted of removing the proximal two screws of the rear plate. Previously placed by Dr Samuel Antuña in December 2020. Followed by a rotational humeral osteotomy. 

This procedure involves creating a transverse cut of the humeral bone to rotate the humerus. Along its long axis. The amount of rotation performed today was approximately 30 degrees of external rotation.

The humerus was stabilized in the new position using an anterior plate with multiple screws. The surgery was completed uneventfully. We would like to wish Mr Marquez a swift recovery. And a triumphant return to his professional career.”
