Matthew's Surgery

Matthew was born with angled thumbs and undescended testes, both typical of his syndrome. On the 26th November he underwent surgery to have these two issues corrected.

The orthopaedic surgeon, working under a microscope, cut into the bones in the thumbs and straightened them. He put wires down the middle of the thumb bones to fix them in place.

The urologist found Matt's testes in his groin area and brought them down into his scrotum.

Amazing craftsmanship!!!

Waiting for surgery, unaware that his life is about to change!

Here is the brave warrior after he emerged from theatre...

Celebrating one year of Physio!!

Matt’s first visit from his physiotherapist, Pamela K Hansford, was on the 24th November 2006 when she came to our home. Since that time he has had regular sessions at her at practice. She has helped him make great progress. This post is to celebrate one year of physiotherapy – of stabilizing, stretching, and strengthening.
