Sports injuries are highly topical and I deal with lead sports men at both club and country level. They are a highly specialised group of patients who require immediate attention and treatment and recovery is a lot quicker than with an average patient.
Technology allows us to do these through minimally invasive techniques and thus injuries are treated quickly through smaller incisions allowing for rapid recovery. Working with elite sports men at both club and country level often does give the treating clinician the exposure to a variety of complex sports injuries.
We also see amateur sportsmen whom have been injured and they receive the same treatment in order to enable a swift recovery.
There are many mechanisms at individual hospitals; I work through Spire Manchester Hospital, which gives us access to such technology including advanced diagnostics and expertises from other specialists such as physiotherapists.
