I am a shoulder surgeon in the UK. My NHS post is at the Wrightington Upper Limb Unit and my
Private Practice in Manchester with The Arm Clinic, based at HCA The Wilmslow Hospital.
I have been a specialist in shoulder surgery since 2001. My practice has evolved to specialise
completely on sports and soft tissue injuries of the shoulder. Providing second opinions, treating
complex cases and performing revision surgery makes up a large proportion of my work. I practice
closely with similar colleagues who specialise in complex trauma and shoulder replacement
surgeries, as well as therapists dedicated to complex shoulder management and elite sports injuries
My primary focus has always been to try my best for my patients, even when surgery is not the first
option as most shoulder injuries can be treated with non-surgical means. As such, I also strive to
educate and empower my patients, supported by my educational website –
Academically, I have written numerous books and contributed to the work of others on shoulder
surgery and rehabilitation and am actively involved in research, with over 100 research publications.
I regularly teach both undergraduate and postgraduate medical, sports therapy and sports medicine
students. As such I am clinical lead and hold the post of Honorary Professor with the University of
Salford. In addition I offer continued professional development seminars for physios, AHPs and other
clinicians to ensure they are kept up to date with best practice.
