Marc Marquez Surgery News

Following his record-breaking 2013 MotoGP Season, Marc Marquez underwent quick surgery to improve his breathing.

The 2013 MotoGP Champion, who became the youngest rookie to ever win a title, had the operation due to a “deviated septum that produced a respiratory obstruction preventing him breathing properly.”

Marquez underwent surgery at the Universitari Quirón Dexeus Hospital in Spain. Doing the work on the 20-year-old Spaniard was  Dr. Angel Chartre, Chief of the Internal Medicine of Hospital Universitari Quiron Dexeus and Dr. Miguel Conti, otorhinolaryngologist at the facility.

Marquez will now rest for a week before returning to his normal schedule of events to prepare for the 2014 MotoGP Championship.

The Repsol Honda RC213V pilot, who has titles across all three MotoGP classes, was fastest during the traditional post-season test at Valencia, and is expected to be fierce once again in 2014 MotoGP.
