Thanks to expert, ground-breaking surgery by Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Knee Specialist, Mr Paul Trikha, young Daniel Welch will be able to carry on playing sport after a seemingly minor accident caused serious damage to his knee.

Aged just nine years old at the time of his accident, Daniel is one of the youngest people in the country to have received a full ACL reconstruction – a graft replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee.

Mum Emma Welch praises his care: “From the moment we walked in, the care we received was brilliant, from everyone. Straight away we were struck by Mr Trikha’s concern for Daniel, how he wanted to make the best decisions about his treatment and the speed he made everything happen. We have been absolutely thrilled, thank you. ”

Mr Trikha adds: “There are very few hospitals in the country that can do this kind of repair on such young children, but to give Daniel back his mobility and to save his knee in the future, it was really important to do the full reconstruction now.”
