Clinical Interests

I specialise exclusively in the assessment and treatment of shoulder and elbow conditions including injuries and fractures. I use the latest minimally invasive state-of-the-art arthroscopic techniques to accelerate the recovery process so that my patients can return to their work, activities and sports in a timely manner. Some of the more common problems with the shoulder and elbow that I regularly treat are listed below:

Shoulder Problems: subacromial impingement/bursitis, rotator cuff tears, calcific tendonitis, frozen shoulder, new and recurrent dislocations, SLAP tears, shoulder arthritis, acromio-clavicular (ACJ) arthritis and injuries/dislocations, shoulder fractures, clavicle fractures.

Elbow Problems: Elbow arthritis/stiffness, ulnar nerve compression (cubital tunnel syndrome), tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), biceps tendon injuries, olecranon bursitis, dislocations and instability, elbow fractures
