John has over 20 years’ experience of the surgical and conservative treatment options for shoulder conditions.
He will provide a balanced approach to your problem and make recommendations, particularly as to whether treatment can be non-operative or if a surgical procedure would be recommended.
John bases his decisions on extensive experience and the application of fundamental principles, using the best available techniques and equipment.
You will be looked after by John’s friendly and efficient staff.
