Arm reduction and lift (Brachioplasty) is a form of body contouring (shaping). It is normally performed on patients with large amounts of loose or sagging skin on the upper arms.
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to repair or replace a damaged or diseased joint.
Surgeons can perform a bone graft to repair or rebuild damaged bone in many areas of your body.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome happens when the nerve that crosses the front of your wrist (the median nerve) is trapped causing pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the hand and arm. The nerve passes through the carpal tunnel, a canal in the wrist that carries all the tendons of the hand. If these tendons are swollen, the nerve is squeezed and becomes trapped.
Cartilage is the thin tissue that covers bone surfaces providing smooth, friction free movement.
The ulnar nerve goes round the back of the inner side of your elbow (sometimes called your funny bone). It then goes through a tight tunnel between the forearm muscles.
Our experienced consultants can diagnose and treat your elbow problems in a hospital near you.
Shockwave therapy is a non-surgical treatment, and works by delivering impulses of energy, targeted to specific damaged tissues within the abnormal tendon.
If your swollen or painful joints, ligaments or tendons do not respond to conservative treatments your consultant may recommend image guided joint injections.
Joint surfaces damaged by wear and tear or arthritis may be able to be resurfaced.
Under general anaesthetic your surgeon will move your stiff joint to a full range of motion, stretching the surrounding muscles and freeing the joint capsule.
PRP treatment uses a patient's own blood to promote the healing of injured tendons, joints, muscles and ligaments.
Shoulder decompression (or subacromial depression) is an operation to cleaning and repair damaged tendons around the upper arm and shoulder area.
Shoulder manipulation is a treatment for frozen shoulder, that consists of stretching and releasing the shoulder capsule.
Your shoulder is a ball and socket joint. The top of your arm (humerus) fits into a socket (glenoid). Wear and tear or an injury can result in pain and restricted movement in the joint.
If you have a dislocated shoulder, this operation repairs the lining of the damaged shoulder joint to make it stable again.
The rotator cuff is formed of four tendons and the adjacent muscles that attach your arm to the top of your shoulder blade, which gives the shoulder stability and control. Tears to the rotator cuff tendon can occur for many reasons including acute injury, overuse or normal age-related changes.
Although called tennis elbow, you may get this injury and not even have played tennis. It can happen after the repeated strain of gripping or twisting your hand or wrist.
Trigger point injections are used to apply a local anaesthetic and steroid to an inflamed area to relieve pain.
