The surgery was performed by Dr. Randy Viola at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado, and was reported to be a success. Dr. Viola cleaned up a chip at the base of the thumb and hook of hamate (a bone near the little finger), repaired the fractured second metacarpal with a plate and screws, and also repaired torn ligaments.

Roczen’s initial prognosis is six-to-eight weeks, but he will be reevaluated throughout his recovery, and he plans to attend several races and dealer appearances.

Roczen posted on Instagram: “Once again there was a lot going on here. Shattered hand, dislocation of all metacarpals and torn ligaments. Been in A LOT of pain since the surgery. Sometimes we get tested in life. We take care of this shit and come back and try this again.”
