Tracey is back on the tools!
Tracey Meyer our Master Podiatrist has recently returned to work on feet. Both her shoulders are now fixed thanks to the magnificent work by Mr Malcolm Wicks (Upper Limb Orthopaedic Surgeon) located in South Tce Adelaide. The operations were so successful that now her Partner Andrew has just had both his shoulders done and is back in shortly to see Mr Wicks for a carpal tunnel procedure.
Tracey's Shoulder Surgery
After six months of constant shoulder pain; 3 cortisone injections; Physiotherapy & Chiropractic, Tracey has resorted to the surgical option. She had an arthroscopic procedure on October 2nd 2013 with Mr Malcolm Wicks to resolve a problem caused (in part) by 20 years of practicing podiatry. Tracey had the second shoulder done in December 2013 with Mr Malcolm Wicks - upper limb orthopaedic surgeon located in Adelaide. All went well and the prognosis is good.
