As captain of Melrose Rugby Club it is important that any injuries are dealt with as quickly and effectively as possible. I saw a couple of specialists prior to visiting Mr Driscoll where no diagnosis was made accurately and after months of going back and forward, doing different rehab programmes, I eventually got referred to Mr Driscoll. As soon as we met, he was quick to identify the problem and to find a suitable treatment. My surgery was carried out very quickly and I felt confident in my surgeons abilities at all times. He kept in contact with me with regards to recovery and I was able to get back to playing full rugby in 9 weeks, I was back running in the 5th week. However, I am confident that if I had been able to see Mr Driscoll earlier in the process (ie before I lost all fitness) I would have been back playing full rugby in 6-7 weeks.
