The Birmingham Knee Replacement (BKR) is a new knee replacement, enabling patients to be highly active following surgery. Colin from Derby had a right BKR at the BMI Edgbaston Hospital with Mr. McMinn in April 2010. During surgery, Mr. McMinn was able to address Colin’s badly bowed leg and straighten it. Less than 12 months later, he’s back to his favorite hobbies.
Colin’s an Energy Consultant who enjoys snow skiing and water skiing. Ever the thrill-seeker, his knee problems began 30 years ago during a rock climbing accident. He recalls, “I would’ve probably done better to break my leg, but unfortunately what I did was damage the cartilage. I then had two knee operations to clean the joint up. And since that I had to use knee braces to enable me to keep doing sport.”
