TMZ spoke to Matthew "Mdot" Finley's rep, Eric Ortner, who tells us the 23-year-old star of "Camp Rock 2" has already undergone THREE surgeries to reposition and stabilize his right tibia and fibula bones.

Doctor's are using screws, pins and all sorts of metal contraptions to help keep the leg together -- check out the pics in the gallery.

We broke the story ... Finley lost control of his Ducati while driving on a windy road in Malibu last Thursday and fell 100 feet off a cliff.

Too much bike for you son. that road next, to Laurel Canyon, is perfect for teaching you how to down shift and learn how to tap the brakes. A lot of people just don't know how to ride bikes.

this is why I hate bikes. Everyone I have ever known that drove one ended up like that. Even people that had driven for years...it's not just how you drive, but the idiot drivers in cars that cut you off. If you ride a bike sooner or later you will end up with bolts and rods holding your bones together.

Yikes @ the 100 foot free fall.

Glad he only (I realize his leg is totaled but still) suffered a really badly messed up limb as well as what sound like minor-moderate injuries to his head and face.

Enjoy the pain meds Matthew.

@ Ziggy:

No offense intended, but your attitude is common of people who like to blame inanimate objects for mistakes make by people. Most people who take up riding have no idea of what they're doing and as a result, often pay the price with injury and sometimes death. The odd thing about this attitude in our culture towards motorcycles is that automobile accidents cause FAR and AWAY more deaths and injuries than motorcycles ever could, simply because automobiles outnumber motorcycles more than 100 to 1.

I write a blog dedicated to motorcycle safety and information, with the intent of changing negative stereotypes about riders. Check it out:
