Shoulder pain in Bexleyheath? Our orthopaedic surgeon treats all conditions

Mr Yanni is an expert shoulder surgeon who can diagnose and help treat any shoulder condition. He offers both surgical and non-surgical shoulder treatments near Bexleyheath.

Common Shoulder Conditions Treated In Bexleyheath

  • Rotator Cuff Tear: The rotator cuff are the four tendons of the shoulder joint that keep the shoulder in place. A tear or injury in this location can cause a dull ache, and it can be painful to sleep on this side.
  • Frozen Shoulder: Adhesive Capsulitis or Frozen Shoulder is when the shoulder gradually becomes stiffer over time and can continue for up to three years. It is common in diabetic patients.
  • Shoulder impingement: This condition occurs when the rotator cuff or bursa becomes compressed or pinched in the space between the ball of the shoulder and the socket. It can cause pain and restricted movement of the shoulder joint.
  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: A shoulder subluxation is where a shoulder partially dislocates, and dislocation is where it fully comes out of the socket. The looser ligaments can make it harder for the shoulder to stay in place, causing it to become unstable.
  • impingement: This condition is the inflammation of the tendons of the shoulder joint. It may cause severe pain at rest and during activities.

Nuggets of Wisdom


Many tendons run around the hand both on the palm side and also on the back of the hand.  These can be involved in inflammation and any inflammation of a tendon is described as a tendonitis.  These are often related to overuse syndromes through manual work, repetitive activity, sporting endeavours and also in the workplace due to repetitive keyboard use.  They can also occur against the backdrop of inflammation in the joints and systemic arthritis.

Mr Yanni - Bexleyheath elbow consultant

“Mr Dimitri Yanni, was an angel sent to me in my time of pain, my first meeting with Mr Yanni left me feeling totally confident that he would look after me. In fact after my surgery I was struggling with uncontrollable pain and emailed Mr. Yanni, although it was a bank holiday, his birthday and he was out of the country, he phoned me and made immediate arrangements for me to get to a hospital with full explanation of what he required them to do. Mr. Yanni has gone over and beyond, couldn’t have wished for anyone better to have taken care of me. Thank you so much for caring, professionalism.”
