“I experienced pain and discomfort in my left knee, I often played through the pain until it was clear to my Coach and Dad that I should be substituted, both and pain and being taken off were unbearable. I was referred by my GP to Mr Tselentakis, just as my brother had previously, I was confident he would be able to help me by providing the best advice and treatment.
An MRI Scan revealed that I have a small fracture in my left knee and the bone was being held in place by perfectly good cartilage. I just wanted the surgery so I could get back on the field as quickly as possible.
At the time Mr Tselentakis suggested that I rest from sports for 6 months and have physio involving an exercise and strengthening programme. His advice was to allow the bone to heal naturally. Eventually this injury stopped bothering me, now when I look back on this I am aware of how lucky I was to have a Surgeon who advised a non-surgical option, the long term benefit to me was his main concern. Mr Tselentakis provided me with wonderful care, accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan that has been a complete success.
Having moved away from football in favour of basketball, I thought that injuries were a thing of the past, how wrong I was!!"
