Hello world! My name is Melanie, and I have four sons in their late teens. My hubbie was an enthusiastic AFL player before I married him and my sons have followed in his footsteps. They all still play on the same team! I can't complain that I was naive because my hubbie had a broken arm when I first met him! I was the lucky emergency nurse on duty. That was the first of many AFL injuries I have dealt with. As a result, I advise all sportspeople to find an excellent orthopaedic surgeon. He or she can help bones heal properly and give advice about how to prevent injuries. At fifty-two, my hubbie is still playing every weekend after quite a few fractures. This blog highlights the skills of orthopaedic surgeons that I have come appreciate over the years. I hope you find it interesting and informative.
