An £840 cheque was presented to Professor Glyn-Jones last week and will be put to good use, supporting further research in this area.
Nick was only 23 when he had surgery and had been under Professor Glyn-Jones’ care for three years, with advanced hip osteoarthritis.
This meant that Nick was in significant pain and could not enjoy exercise and sports. Nick underwent a total hip replacement performed using advanced 3D printing and biomechanical analysis.
"Needing a hip replacement and ultimately having one has been life-changing", says Nick. "Without Professor Glyn-Jones' expertise and guidance I wouldn't be doing as well as I am right now."
“As a surgeon and a father, it’s very hard to come across young people needing major operations. We are very happy to have been able to make such a difference to Nick’s life and it’s heart-warming to see him go out and achieve these very physical challenges and lead an active life", says Professor Glyn-Jones.
Nick has been given the all clear for five years at his last appointment. We wish him the very best of luck and thank him for his contribution.
