Shoulder and elbow problems are common and can occur at any age. They can be very disabling and potentially interrupt all aspects of your home, sporting and professional life. In may cases non-surgical treatments, such as physiotherapy or injections, can treat your problem and these are often tried first.  Sometimes however an operation is required to provide enduring relief.

Patients quite rightly seek and expect a good understanding both of their particular problem and who will be treating them; especially if they are contemplating surgery or other invasive treatments.  

This website aims to give you accessible and reliable information regarding your Orthopaedic problem and how it might be treated.  I hope it also gives you a flavour of what I can offer you. My elective surgical practice focuses exclusively on the Upper Limb and I treat the whole range of conditions involving the shoulder and the elbow.  I employ the most advanced, proven and up-to-date techniques to ensure that you get the best possible result from your treatment, whether you require an operation or something less invasive.

I believe it is critical that you as the patient are involved in decision-making about your problem and how it should be managed.  While many patients suffer from the same condition, every patient is affected by his or her condition in an individual way and each patient brings with them a unique set of personal and social circumstances.  By integrating accurate diagnosis, a sound understanding of your condition, and the treatment options available, I work together with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your own circumstances. 

My sole aim is to help you recover as fully and swiftly as possible, whilst providing a caring and professional service for you.  In achieving this, I am supported by anaesthetists, radiologists, physiotherapists, nurses and administrative staff, with whom I work closely to optimise the service you receive.
