Shoulder Reconstruction – One Year on and still Playing Rugby

Mr Brownson has recently recieved a letter from the father of one of his patients. Rugby is a tough old sport even for those who have not had to go through shoulder surgery, so it’s great to hear that one year on from a shoulder reconstruction the patient is going from strength to strength.

"Dear Peter

It’s been a while since we spoke, so I thought that I’d give you a quick update on Stephen and his progress.

Since you repaired his shoulder he really has gone from strength to strength. It is exactly a year since played his first game of rugby after the reconstruction and (touch wood) he has been injury free and stronger than ever.

Last season he captained the Yorkshire U17s side in a successful campaign culminating in them beating their old rivals Lancashire. He has now been selected to play for Yorkshire U18s and has made it into the Yorkshire U20s side as well. Additionally he was delighted to recently be selected for the Yorkshire Terrier touring side in summer 2017 – he will get to spend a month touring Australia, New Zealand and Singapore playing rugby before he goes off to University.

On the school front he is doing well. He is captain of the School first XV and has also been elected as Head Boy. He is trying to balance the rugby with his A-Levels and is hoping to get into either Oxford or St Andrews to read history. It is going to be a busy year for him!

Both Ruth and I are absolutely convinced that without your surgical skills Stephen wouldn’t have returned to competitive rugby and achieved what he has both on and off the field. More importantly he wouldn’t be enjoying life as much as he is. Thank you, we really do owe you a debt of gratitude for all you have done for him.

Kind Regards
