Polish star Patryk Dudek underwent successful surgery on his broken arm in Barcelona on Saturday.

The world No.2 suffered the injury when he collided with Sweden’s Peter Ljung in Dackarna’s Swedish Elitserien play-off semi-final, first leg win at home to Vastervik on Tuesday.

He was transferred to Spain for surgery at the Quiron Dexeus hospital, where he was operated on by Xavier Mir Bulló – one of the world’s leading specialists in upper-limb fractures, who has treated the likes of MotoGP stars Marc Márquez, Dani Pedrosa and Jorge Lorenzo, as well as Barcelona footballer Ivan Rakitic.

Dudek is set to stay in Barcelona for observation until Monday, but according to Falubaz.com, Mir is satisfied with the operation and has issued the rider a rehabilitation programme to get him back on track as soon as possible.

It’s unclear whether the treatment will allow Dudek to get back on track before the end of SGP 2018 or Zielona Gora’s crunch promotion-relegation play-off with the First Division runners-up.

Next up on the World Championship calendar is the German SGP in Teterow this Saturday, before the season closes with the Torun SGP on October 6.
