Revolutionising Ligament repair
The InternalBrace is the biggest leap forward in the treatment and regeneration of damaged ligaments and tendons in the last 30 years, allowing anybody from Olympians to recreational walkers to get back to sport and activity in a fraction of the time it takes to recover from conventional surgery. InternalBracing is designed to protect ligament repairs and reconstructions even for late presentations.

The Internal Brace is revolution
The future of ligament repair
The InternalBrace is the future of ligament repair because it is a painless addition to any ligament repair or augmentation which protects it during the crucial period of healing and remodelling. It therefore allows immediate mobilisation which is not possible with standard reconstruction. Research is also showing much better long term injury free outcomes compared to traditional reconstruction surgery.
What makes the InternalBrace a unique way to repair injury
The beauty of the InternalBrace as a repair mechanism is that it harnesses the body’s natural recuperative powers. Surgery can happen as quickly as possible after the injury, (unlike in a traditional reconstruction where you may be asked to wait for the joint to settle down), and ACL InternalBrace patients are encouraged to mobilise immediately after surgery, meaning there is no period of incapacitation. InternalBrace surgery is also indicated for revision surgery or chronic long-term injuries.
While the patient is gradually increasing the intensity and duration of exercise following surgery, the ligament/tendon grows through the lattice structure of the InternalBrace which acts as a scaffold, supporting the regeneration and healing of the injured tissue. Because the affected joint does not need to be incapacitated, it does not need to be put in a plaster cast, which traditionally results in a loss of condition for the surrounding muscles (wasting) and extends recovery time. Using an InternalBrace often reduces recovery time for work and sport by as much as 50%.
To quote Chris Coetze, President of the US Foot and Ankle Society, "This (the InternalBrace) is the most significant innovation in my practice over the last ten years."
In some of our podcast episodes, we chat to patients about their experience of InternalBrace surgery.
HOW THE INTERNALBRACE IS ALTERING PATIENT OUTCOMES FOR THE BETTER
Repair with the InternalBrace can restore 100% of the native strength of ankle ligaments immediately at the time of surgery
90% of ACL repairs have regained 90% of function by 12 weeks after surgery
An AC joint augmented with the InternalBrace can help to avoid the 40% left with residual instability after traditional surgery
100% of knee ligaments can weight bear the day after surgery with InternalBracing
BENEFITS OF INTERNALBRACE SURGERY
WHO DOES IT WORK FOR
THE INTERNALBRACE IN DEPTH WHAT WE OFFER?
We offer surgery on all common knee, ankle, shoulder and elbow injuries, as well as more complex and serious surgeries on these joints.
INTERNALBRACE IN DEPTH
What exactly is the InternalBrace and how does it work for acute and chronic ligament injuries and instabilities? Find out more.
Whether the result of a high-impact injury or repetitive wear in the gym, the InternalBrace can help with actute and chronic ligament injuries and instabilities.
We use an InternalBrace to stabilise and strengthen the knee, accelerating recovery times for acute and chronic ligament injuries and instabilities.
This is the most frequently damaged joint, accounting for one sixth of sports injuries, the InternalBrace can be used for acute and chronic ligament injuries and instability.
Some of our patient stories
From an injured Olympian winning a miracle medal to a horse rider competing despite being told she may never walk again, the InternalBrace helps elite athletes and ordinary people get back to doing what they love. Here are some patient video stories. You will find many more on our Youtube channel.
