Danny MacAskill

Street Trials

Procedure Description

Danny MacAskillProfessional street trials rider Danny MacAskill originally came to DISC to get a second opinion for his knee pain, after Red Bull recommended he make an appointment there.  Upon arriving, Dr. Andrew Bulczynski did an MRI on his knee but found nothing; he then ordered a back MRI and recommended he see Dr. Robert S. Bray to find out if the knee pain originated from the back.  Dr. Bray found that MacAskill had a partially ruptured disc, a bone spur, a pinched nerve (which caused his knee pain) and congenital spinal stenosis; MacAskill underwent surgery (the same day Robbie Maddison came in for his back surgery).

Born in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, MacAskill’s popularity grew after he posted videos on YouTube of bike stunts he did as he traveled the world.  His new documentary web series, “Imaginate,” featured his visit to DISC in the premiere episode.  In 2012, MacAskill was nominated for the Adventurer of the Year Award.
