Leading London Gym Founder Now Pain-Free Following Arthroscopic Hip Procedure

David Kingsbury runs a successful gym, OPUS Fitness in London. Whilst helping other people to reach their fitness goals, David was impeded by his own painful hip condition. As a personal trainer and instructor, he works with clients everyday – online and in-person leading classes and demonstrating proper form for all types of different exercises.

After living with hip pain and discomfort for nearly 10 years, it came to a point where David struggled to work throughout the day as the constant pain made demonstrations difficult. At home the pain continued and disrupted his sleep, leaving him tired and struggling to recover. Having had three previous surgeries to try and fix the problem, he decided it was time to find a permanent final solution.

David got in touch with Mr Joyti Saksena, who carried out the appropriate testing and imaging in order to find the exact diagnosis – Femoroacetabular Impingement. He then explained the problem and the solution to David, before recommending arthroscopic hip surgery. This minimally invasive technique would be less invasive and aid David’s post-surgical recovery, which was very important as he was concerned about getting back to work and his normal activities.

Following surgery, David was off pain medication in less than three days and was walking unaided after six. The gentle exercise was then possible after two weeks, short bike rides after four, and short runs and resistance training after six. The speed of recovery following arthroscopic hip surgery meant David was able to get back to work and his everyday activities even quicker.

About his experience with Mr Saksena, David said ‘I am so grateful to Mr Saksena – he was so understanding and addressed all of my concerns as a personal trainer. I can’t thank him enough!’
