Schrötter: Surgery and medical test went very positive
Marcel Schrötter underwent a successful surgery on his broken scaphoid bone of his left hand on Monday morning in Munich. A medical check on Tuesday made hope for a speedy recovery.
On Monday following the Brno Grand Prix, where Marcel Schrötter unfortunately wasn't able to take part, the intervention in the Munich Schreiber Clinic was carried out by Dr. med. Klaus-Dieter Werber. The hand specialist gave a very positive feedback regarding the state of health of the Dynavolt Intact GP rider.
Fortunately, the fracture wasn't displaced and could be fixed without complications by a screw. As soon as the ends of the fracture had been firmly connected, it was assured that the blood circulation in the bone became better, which in turn pushes the healing process.
The 24-year-old had to stay in the clinic for one night. A medical performance check on Tuesday showed the full load capacity of the hand, but the pain can keep staying strong for the following ten days.
Nevertheless, Marcel wants to get back on his Suter for the Austrian GP at the Red Bullring in Spielberg this weekend and try if he can ride without any physical constraints. Before that, however, he has to pass the medical examination by the Chief Medical Officer at the circuit medical centre of the Red Bull Ring, which takes place on Thursday at 13:30.
