The same surgeon, Dr. Joaquin Rodriguez, who used eight screws to fit Lorenzo’s broken left collarbone with a titanium plate last Friday morning, used ten screws this Saturday morning, again at the Hospital General de Catalunya in san Cugat del Vallés, and, in an interview in Spain’s Tele5, gave the rider the same advice: "He needs repose for four weeks in order for the bone to set"
He added, "I am pleased that Jorge has made the decision not to race next weekend."
The advice for JL for Sachsenring looks to have been the same as above. But that surgeon probably has no clue of anything, he just performed the two operations.
