Hello and welcome

I want to welcome you to this website and hope you find the information useful. I am a consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in the surgical and non-surgical management of shoulder and elbow conditions. I have an interest in helping patients suffering with pain or reduced function due to their shoulder or elbow.

My aim is to find a tailored management plan that suits you.

I do this by understanding patients and their problems as individuals. I appreciate that a management plan for one patient, may not be suitable or desirable for another.

I have made this website to help those who are seeking information about their shoulder and elbow problems, and for my patients to access some useful material to compliment our consultations.



Management plans are a shared decision making process and are based on evidence. Not all management plans require surgery, but when they do, I offer:

Key-hole (arthroscopic) shoulder surgery for

  • rotator cuff tears,
  • shoulder stabilisation,
  • SLAP repairs,
  • capsular release for frozen shoulder,
  • calcific tendinopathy,
  • acromio-clavicular joint disruptions or arthritis

Open shoulder surgery to deal with

  • arthritis (shoulder replacements),
  • acute/delayed surgery to deal with fractures (or sequalae of trauma) of the shoulder and humerus

Open surgery around the elbow to deal with

  • tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis),
  • golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis),
  • ulnar nerve entrapment (cubital tunnel syndrome),
  • biceps tendon ruptures,
  • olecranon bursitis,
  • elbow arthritis/stiffness
  • elbow fractures
