Nicky Hayden back home following successful surgery

08 February 2012
On Monday, February 5, Nicky Hayden underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on the right shoulder that he had injured in late December. During the procedure, which was carried out in Fremont, California, and which lasted approximately 40 minutes, Dr Arthur Ting discovered and repaired a tear in the labrum. Yesterday's post-operation appointment confirmed that the surgery was successful, and the Ducati Team rider returned home to begin his recovery. If the convalescence proceeds as hoped, Hayden should be able to take part in the next winter test at Sepang, February 28-March 1.

"It's a setback, but all things considered, I'm pretty happy with how things went," Hayden said. "It's good that it was possible to do everything by 'scope, and the pain's not too bad. The problem should be fixed now, and I look forward to being able to help out the team as soon as possible."
