Accreditation in treating musician/performing arts injuries

In practice

I treat conditions from the shoulder to the fingertip including arthritis/joint pain, tendon pain, pins and needles, overuse and sports injuries

Most patients can be treated without surgery, but I can perform surgery where this is needed to solve the problem

I have a specialist interest in treating musicians of all musical styles and instruments

I regularly see patients who have complex problems that are difficult to diagnose

I perform complex hand and wrist operations under local anaesthetic
