Leon Camier has had successful surgery on his left shoulder, the operation carried out earlier today at the Arm Clinic in Wilmslow, UK.

The decision was taken to proceed with an operation despite the progress made so far in terms of the rider’s physiotherapy rehabilitation, which has allowed Camier to fully recover movement in his shoulder.

When Leon tried a riding test on a Supermotard bike however, it became clear that he has not yet regained the necessary strength in his shoulder. Further medical advice was therefore sought this week, the doctors ultimately recommending an operation to stabilize the joint. The surgery was performed today so as to allow Camier time to recover over the long summer break.
