Mr Andrew Goldberg successfully carried out groundbreaking stem cell treatment which helped a racehorse on a woman from London.
Jill James has suffered from achilles tendinopathy for years.
The innovative new therapy involved taking stem cells from Miss James' pelvis, multiplying them and reinserting them into her foot.
The human trial was carried out by Mr Goldberg, of Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and University College London.
He initially trialled the treatment on horses, and after the success in that field, was given permission to use the stem cell treatment on people.
Andrew Goldberg believes that it could be a game-changer and hugely beneficial for sufferers of achilles tendinopathy and other achilles injuries.
