Nev The Ultrarunner

nev the ultrarunnerNev the Ultrarunner !!

In the Summer of 2018 Nev got the running bug in a big way and set himself the crazy challenge to run a 100km ultramarathon non-stop to raise money for the Royal Berks Charity.

It was time to get fit, but my training was hampered ironically by a niggling left knee injury that wouldn’t settle. After 4 months of attempted non operative treatments, I went under the knife on New Year’s Eve 2018. Richard Dodds, my senior colleague at RBH performed a keyhole arthroscopy and trimmed back a tear of flipped meniscal cartilage. The operation was a real success, (phew!) and within a week I was back operating on my own patients. Within 2 weeks I had my trainers back on and the hard work started building up to the Race to the Stones 100km Ultramarathon in the Summer.

Nev has written a series of entertaining blogs as his training plan progressed through the year leading up to the race.

“Since that experience I have continued to train regularly, get increasingly fitter and healthier and entered some future races. This training has had a massive positive impact on my physical and mental health, as well my organisational skills, balancing a successful surgical practice, and my family life with 3 sporty boys under 13 years old.”

    I had a knee arthroscopy to removed and clean up damaged cartilage after 6 years of repeated injury and dislocation from playing sport. I had been putting off the idea of surgery, but it was a great decision to finally get it seen to. I couldn't be happier with the results so far, and in less time than expected. Running, squats and climbing stair caused pain, and a lot more cracking than a 22 year old's knee should have! Now 2 weeks after the op, and following the physio exercises given after the operations, I am driving and climbing/ descending stairs without a problem and on the road to a full recover and hoping to get back to regular exercise within the next few weeks.

    I came to see you approximately four years ago and talked through the pros and cons of having an ACL replacement following an ACL rupture in my right knee I suffered playing an ill- advised game of beach volley ball on holiday in Antigua. I went ahead with the operation which you successfully performed at the Dunedin Hospital in Reading, I got on with my rehab and I now just wanted to let you to know that I will be running the London Marathon in three weeks (and raising money for Whizz-Kidz a disability charity for young people.) This letter is just a belated thank you for enabling this to happen.

    Mr Davies is a fantastic surgeon he put in a half knee joint in my right knee I have no problem with it ever since the operation in August last year. I have no more pain in my knee at all. I would recommend him to anyone.

    Mr Nev Davies has a very pleasant manner and was easy to talk to. The service provided was efficient, quickly identified the problems I had and was able to recommend treatment close to where I live.
