“Last August, I crushed and fractured my C2 vertebra diving into shallow water while in Greece. Miraculously I did not damage the spinal cord or one of the major blood vessels to my brain. I was able to get back to London for treatment after immobilisation with a stiff collar to stabilise the fracture. However the fracture would not heal in the collar after 6 weeks. I was not keen to undertake a risky surgical intervention and was very lucky to meet Mr. Potter. He came up with an alternative idea: the hyperbaric chamber or oxygen therapy, which we tried for 3 months and proved successful to achieve bone union across the fracture. A true example of conservative management of complicated fracture and out of the box thinking. Mr. Potter has assisted me throughout the process of re-mobilisation and rehabilitation and I can now say I am nearly back to normal life. An exceptional result in such a short time. I have no words that can express my full gratitude for all that you have done for me and my family.”
