Date of Birth

Please could you pass on my best regards to David, as I was a patient of his back in 2015, diagnosed with Lateral Facet Overpressure Syndrome. Since then, I have managed to work my way back from a lot of knee trouble to completing this year’s London Marathon. I wanted to share my story as it’s important to show that if I can do this at 47 years ‘young’ then anything is possible for patients who are my age or younger and also suffering comparable knee issues.

If you need to have a knee or hip replacement, your surgeon may have recommended you have a robotic assisted procedure.
