The Shoulder and Elbow Unit at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital is led by consultants who are each recognised as international experts in the management of conditions affecting the shoulder and elbow. The Unit aims to deliver world-class surgical care and rehabilitation for patients with complex shoulder and elbow pathology, underpinned by evidence-based medicine and undertaken in a multidisciplinary team environment.
The Unit is one of the largest in the country, with referrals to the service coming from throughout the UK. We cover all aspects of shoulder & elbow surgery, including routine and complex primary arthroplasty, revision arthroplasty, prosthetic joint infections, instability, and rotator cuff dysfunction.
The Unit is an established referral hub for primary and revision elbow replacements, and also has a large primary and revision shoulder replacement practice. The arthroplasty practice includes the management of prosthetic joint infections and has well-established pathways for the treatment of infected shoulder and elbow replacements.
Our Surgeons have extensive experience in the use of patient-specific guides and custom made implants using CAD-CAM technology in order to deal with complex deformities.
The Unit is a leader in the management and treatment of complex instability and has an inpatient rehabilitation facility.
Patients benefit from a multi-disciplinary approach with physiotherapists, occupational therapists, microbiologists, radiologists, rheumatologists, and a clinical nurse specialist.
