ACL Reconstruction to Iron Man

2022-09-28T13:48:31+00:00

Another happy patient's testimonial: Rehab is feeling much more positive and enjoyable I might say, completing my physio exercises and I’m on the bike for 1.30mins three times a week and the exercises in the mornings. I decided to go for a walk/jog/run with my daughter on the Sunday afternoon, which was 2.4 miles, and this was completely amazing and felt wonderful. I had the ACL reconstruction following a skiing accident and I told you I was going to do two Ironman Triathlon's in 2022. Well I have I went to Austria in July this year and then I came back [...]

British Championship Swimmer back to her Best

2022-06-27T21:41:20+00:00

As someone who has always had a hugely busy and competitive sporting life, the news that I had ruptured my ACL falling off a horse in April 2021 seemed unbearable and I couldn’t quite get my head round how I would cope. Mr Gleeson was massively understanding and immediately helped me make a plan as to what I could still do and the aims I was to have in both my pre and post- surgery rehabilitation, from my first appointment I felt more in control and at ease. My surgery was booked for the beginning of June and I began my [...]

Sports knee injuries

2021-11-15T16:58:02+00:00

We all love playing sport. Sporting participation is at an all-time high. Throughout lockdown many people have turned to sport for relaxation. We love getting involved with playing sports of all different types, football, hockey, handball and padel to name a few. Unfortunately sporting injuries are common and happen for a variety or reasons. They may well be from accidental contact or they can be technique related, from overuse or from a muscle imbalance. Many of us have a tendency to exercise and train in a similar way each time, which means that we train the same muscle groups in the [...]

GKC Knee Replacement One Year On

2021-11-17T22:17:37+00:00

Another happy patient's testimonial: Some20 years ago I tore my cartilage playing tennis. I was advised that the prognosis was pain, and more pain. The inevitable time came when I needed a new knee and I was recommended to Robert Gleeson by a friend. The operation went very smoothly and 3 days later I walked out of the hospital without a stick. One year later I find it difficult to know which is the new knee. My personal trainer tells me no one could tell. As I approach my 78th birthday, the doubters and fearful, should take encouragement from this picture [...]

The Knee Replacement: A Personal Story

2020-11-10T02:59:55+00:00

The nagging ache becomes worse, having started subtly as a twinge, until even friends comment that it affecting everyone’s quality of life “I’m afraid that x-ray rather flattered your knee” he said after examining me. “You are going to need a knee replacement”. We were able to agree on a date for the inevitable but unwelcome operation that day and two weeks later I was admitted to the private hospital. Mr.Gleeson, the surgeon came to see me before the operation and explained in reassuring terms the procedure and the complications, which, in his hands at least, are extraordinarily and thankfully rare.
