Former Wolves forward and Man Utd youth player Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is suing a surgeon after an ‘unnecessary’ surgery that he claims ended his career.
Orthopaedic Surgeon Prof. James Calder operated on Ebanks-Blake after Ebanks-Blake broke his leg while playing for Wolves against Birmingham City in 2013. He developed arthritis after the operation but claims he was not warned that pain and stiffness were a risk of the surgery. He claims he was forced to quit as a result of the ongoing pain and stiffness in his left ankle and not because of the fracture.
He alleges that had he been informed of the “significant risk” of long-term pain and stiffness, he would not have consented to the surgery.
Ebanks-Blake claims the surgery caused the loss of a lucrative Premier League career aged 27. At the time of the operation, the average annual salary for a premier-league footballer was £1.6million.
