Top surgeon offers Andy Murray ‘miraculous’ return to the top
A world-leading specialist in hip surgery believes he can have Andy Murray pain-free and back to his best, and it could even be done in time for this year’s Wimbledon.
Dr Edwin Su is the man who repaired Bob Bryan’s hip, and the American doubles legend has recommended him to Murray as he ponders his future following his failed recent attempted comeback.
“I think it would absolutely be able to help him,” Dr Su is quoted as saying regarding his innovating hip resurfacing surgery.
“Ideally, it is with no pain. Most of the time, right away from the time they wake up from the surgery, patients say that the pain is gone.
“It is really miraculous. There is then healing and soft-tissue pain but, once they start feeling better, they are able to do the things they used to do. They can regain their normal life.
“What is unknown in elite athletes is whether they can return to sport.
“There is no guarantee in any medical procedure but, given he has been able to continue his performance at such a high level with a bad hip, I would guess the new hip would function better.
“I believe it could get him back to the top level.”
