Osteochondral injury ankle

After a seemingly innocent ankle twist whilst walking that failed to settle as expected, my physio suggested referral for surgical opinion and recommended Mr Mark Farndon.

Excellent imaging and initial consultation with Mr Mark Farndon diagnosed significant damage to the cartilage (Osteochondral defect) on my left ankle bone (Talus), the following week I had ankle arthroscopy to recover the loose bits, and micro fracture to repair the damage. The day case surgery was straight forward, following surgery I was without need of pain relief and have been to this day. Two further consultations guided my rehab and physio before being discharged from care.

I would recommend Mr Mark Farndon without hesitation, efficient process, reassuring informed consultations and excellent clinical outcome.

Thank you Mark, your expertise and care is much appreciated.
