Upper Limb Arthroscopy & Shoulder Surgery

Physicians //

My Mission

The Littleaston Orthopaedic And Soft tissue Service (OASIS )clinic/service  was established in 2006 to provide patient focused care and clinical excellence in dealing with all conditions of shoulder Upper Limb and sports injuries. I provide a comprehensive service using well established and proven techniques. Arthroscopic (keyhole surgery), reconstructive and joint replacement surgery are performed to the highest of standards with great emphasis placed on regular auditing and assessment of clinical outcomes.

Diseases of the knee and shoulder are extremely common and span the entire age spectrum. Similarly, sport has become a way of life to most individuals and it is not surprising to see an increasing rate of joint injuries as a result of sport.

 

Specialised sports clinics have been well established in North America, Continental Europe, Australia and South Africa and the aim of this clinic is to provide a complete service, encompassing diagnosis, treatment and appropriate rehabilitation.

 

In order to provide appropriate and effective treatment of such conditions, there is a need for Consultant Surgeons with a high degree of specialisation, experience and clinical expertise. Having such international experience and training my aim is to provide my patients with the highest standards of clinical care.
