Diver back in the water only nine weeks after Achilles Internal Brace surgery

After sustaining an injury to my Achilles whilst scuba diving and an inconclusive diagnosis by the NHS as to the extent of the damage, I was recommended by my physio, Niam Mohahmmed, to Prof Gordon Mackay. An MRI scan was arranged and done within days and it was found that I had a 90% tear! Gordon explained in detail his revolutionary “Internal Brace Technique” and how it compared with conventional surgical treatments and recovery times. I had no hesitation in asking Gordon to get me under his care as soon as possible. The operation was scheduled within a few days and carried out with no complications. The aftercare I received was amazing with Gordon coming to see me and explaining again, in detail, how the operation went and he even emailed me photos taken during the procedure, which has made many a great talking point over lunch! I must say the post operative care has been excellent with various follow up visits to monitor my recovery. I was delighted that only 9 weeks to the day after my procedure, I was back in the water scuba diving with no worries or issues. I can’t thank Gordon and all his team enough, both at The Mackay Clinic and Rosshall BMI in Glasgow for the fantastic care I received and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking treatment for any similar injury.
Thank you so much,
Brendan J Carr
