Nicky Hayden undergoes surgery
Right Arm Operation
Immediately after the most recent MotoGP tests Nicky Hayden travelled to Doctor Angel Vilamor’s clinic in Madrid, Spain for surgery on his right arm.
The American rider was operated on by the Spanish surgeon in the past, to treat ongoing arm-pump (compartmental syndrome) problems, which is frequent in riders, and after a recent check-up just after the latest tests in Sepang, Nicky went back into surgery for a “clean-up” operation, to remove scar tissue resulting from the first operation.
Hayden, who has already returned to America, will participate in the next tests, again in Sepang, on the 25th and 26th February, alongside team-mate Casey Stoner.
