MacKenzie surgery a success

19 October 2012

MK Dons defender Gary MacKenzie has embarked on a rehabilitation programme following successful surgery on his hip.

Gary underwent surgery on Monday for an ongoing problem with his hip joint, the operation, performed by Professor Ernest Schilders, was deemed as a great success by the Dons’ medical team and the Scotsman will now work on a three-month rehabilitation programme.

Speaking to Head of Sports Medicine Simon Crampton said: “We are very pleased with the outcome of the surgery; it was as good as we could have hoped for.

"Gary is now on crutches but he has already responded really well by starting his rehab on Tuesday and he is progressing well; yesterday he spent some time on the spin bike which is positive news.

“It’s still very early stages and Gary has a lot of hard work ahead of him but we are hoping that it will be a 12 week period of rehab and after that, all being well, he should be able to return to training.”
