The Frenchman went from leading the race to finishing 13th place after severe arm-pump problems hit him at mid-race.
With his home race at French GP is coming up next, the factory Yamaha rider could not afford to waste time.
Despite no official details from the factory team, it is understood that Quartararo underwent the same surgery due to similar problems he suffered in 2019 while with Petronas SRT.

According to reports, Quartararo undergoes a standard surgery by cutting the membrane around the muscle to allow more blood flow instead of completely removing the membrane, which is a more thorough procedure.
Sundays’ result saw Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia now leading the championship with 66 points, just 2pts ahead of Fabio Quartararo while another Yamaha rider, Maverick Vinales 3rd place with 50pts.
