Our first episode is an introduction to your Surgical Goals host, orthopaedic sports surgeon Professor Gordon Mackay. Along with co-host, broadcaster Jennifer Reoch, they explore his journey from a football-mad youngster with hopes of a professional career to his decision to pick up a scalpel instead. Today returning patients to sport and activities is what drives him and he explains how insights gained helping athletes heal inspired him to change the face of ligament surgery and led to a personal message from his all-time sporting hero.
You will also find out more about the guests who will be appearing on the podcast in future episodes to talk about their own sporting injury and recovery experiences plus other fascinating aspects of modern sports medicine.
We promise you - no injury or sport will be left untouched!
