Story

As employees of Smith&Nephew 5 of us took the challenge to take part in the wolf run and raise money for Joint Action and the good work they do as...... 1 in 2 of us will need treatment at some point during our lifetime. Young fit people are frequently injured in sport or road traffic accidents. Also, one of the common needs in the over 60's age group is for an artificial hip. In this case, a British orthopaedic surgeon, the late Professor Sir John Charnley, led the way by carrying out the first full hip replacement in 1962 at The Wrightington Hospital in Lancashire. Since then British Surgeons, with the support of the BOA have made many more improvements to treatment.
