Darryn Binder underwent successful surgery in Barcelona
Three days after his crash in the third Moto2 practice session at the Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas, Darryn Binder of the LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP team underwent successful surgery on the double fracture in his right hand.
The South African had already returned to Barcelona from America on Monday afternoon and went directly to the Quiron Dexeus Hospital into the care of the medical team led by Dr. Xavier Mir, chief specialist for hand and microsurgery. On Tuesday morning, the 25-year-old underwent immediate surgery on two fractures in his right hand. The metacarpal bone was fixed with a plate and up to five screws, while a bone of the ring finger, which was also affected, was stabilized with a screw.
According to the Moto2 rookie's statement, the hand is still very swollen and is being treated with the help of a special cooling device to help hematoma regression. Binder will travel back to his adopted home of Andorra on Wednesday morning, where he hopes to start physiotherapy as early as Friday.
The clock is ticking down to the Jerez Grand Prix on April 28-30, but Darryn Binder is committed to doing everything in his power to push on with his regeneration as quickly and as best he can. His crew at the LIQUI MOLY Husqvarna Intact GP team are rooting for their protégé and wish him a speedy recovery and a swift return to racing action.
