I'm fairly level-headed and decided on the robotic surgery as it had evidence of very good results in precision of cutting and accuracy of placing the implant. The operation went really well, and the recovery time was super quick. I had a nerve block rather than a general anaesthetic which meant I did not have any side effects.
“I have been injured all my life playing sport, so I have been particularly focused on finding the best consultant to help with my ongoing needs. Six months on, I am living and working normally again. I am thoroughly enjoying playing 18 holes of golf and running three times a week for five miles a time.
I made my choice after careful consideration on the drastic surgery, I wanted the surgery done quickly with the least disruption to my life - so I opted for bilateral simultaneous knee replacements which the NHS could not offer.
