Ryan Taylor had surgery in Vail, Colorado last Saturday by the world-famous Dr. Steadman, and the surgery on his right knee went well – very well.
Ryan Taylor – a few months ago before hos second knee injury
We learned about Steadman a few years ago when he operated on players like Ronaldo (of Brazil), and Newcastle’s Alan Shearer and Michael Owen, and he ‘s generally regarded as the best knee surgeon in the world – and that’s why his clinic is based in Vail, where there are a lot of knee injuries with skiing.
Here’s some tweets from Ryan starting before his operation last Saturday:
Chilling before my op tomorrow at the Colorado Rockies vs San Francisco Giants, no idea what’s going on here
Welcome to baseball.
Thanks for all your kind messages it means a lot to me, I had a successful operation yesterday, its gonna take a little longer than expected. But I’ll keep fighting and I can’t wait to put on the black and white stripes again at SJP, thanks again for all the support
Good look to Harps today, I’m sure the toon will give him a good send off, great servant to the club for 20 years. Enjoy the game Harps
Day 3 post surgery an everything is going really well. Just gotta be patient in the next few months, I’m just happy it’s gone well.
Can anyone guess what this is, and where it came from??
With a picture of a long rod ….
Few right, the long rod has just been removed out of my tibia from when I broke it in 2006. Weird looking at it, as it was in there 7yrs
Here’s Ryan’s twitter account and we’re sure he’d love to hear from you – maybe you can send him a message of support to help keep his spirits high.
Ryan should be 100% once he returns to football some time next year – Dr, Steadman’s reputation is awesome.
