After years of taking pain relief and the increasing immobility of my ankle I decided it was time to get medical advice. Mr Farndon on inspection of my ankle advised that it was possible to perform ankle replacement surgery and not totally immobilise the ankle, as I thought would be the situation.
The ankle replacement surgery in Harrogate has been a total success and I now have pain free mobility of about 90 percent in my ankle and regularly walk 5 to 10 miles without a thought. The ankle replacement has changed my life, I attend a gym again and also do Pilates weekly.
The follow up support from my surgeon has been great and I now only have annual check ups.
I would recommend anyone who was in my situation to visit Mr Farndon. His advice, surgery, and aftercare has totally change my life giving me back the ability to walk, drive, and enjoy my retirement pain free, which was becoming increasingly difficult, due to my arthritic ankle.
