Brian Greenan,  a renowned celebrity toastmaster is looking forward to getting back to public speaking after his NStride treatment with Mr Vedi.

Brian, age 73, was referred back in 2017 to see Mr Vedi through Choose and Book about his painful knee.

Brian’s work in the corporate arena meant Brian needed to be mobile as he performed and moved across the floor, engaging with his audience. It was essential for him to retain his fitness, but the extreme pain was making it hard for Brian to do his job properly.

Brian had an Xray showing moderate arthritis in his right knee. Initially, Mr Vedi gave him a steroid injection, directly into his knee but Brian showed no real improvement. So, Mr Vedi provided some other options, which included having the NStride autologous injection which was available privately - not through the NHS. This 20-minute procedure enables the inflammation caused by arthritis to be combated by injecting healthy proteins straight into the joint. 

Mr Vedi commented “The intention was to provide a clinical improvement in Mr Greenan’s osteoarthritis as well as an improvement in his quality of life. The longer-term aim is that this will stop the need for key-hole surgery.”

Brian decided to pay for this treatment and booked the procedure at BMI Bishops Wood Hospital  in Northwood.

Mr Vedi said “About 55ml of blood was taken from a vein in Mr Greenan’s arm, mixed with an anticoagulant and ended up with a 3ml protein liquid, which was then injected into his knee.”

Brian said “The pain relief wasn’t instant but within a few weeks I was standing and walking much better. Mr Vedi was brilliant. He was completely honest with me, saying the procedure may work but it also may not. But I saw him as the expert and I had complete confidence in him.”

After two years, Brian had another Xray on his right knee which showed his right knee had not deteriorated at all since he had had the NStride treatment, and instead the treatment had contained his osteoarthritis.

During lockdown, Brian began limping again and this time it was his left knee which began aching from standing for long periods of time. Another Xray revealed there was moderate arthritis on the left knee on top of the joint.

Making sure he would be fit and confident to back to work  in corporate hospitality once lockdown measures eased off,  Brian decided to go back to Mr Vedi and have the NStride treatment on his left  knee in June. Although early days, Brian is already feeling much better.

Brian said “It is  such a relief to have the NStride injection into my left knee. I would highly recommend Mr Vedi and the NStride treatment for those suffering with moderate arthritis. I feel I can go back to work and enjoy life without being in constant pain.”
