Shoulder surgeon near Darenth treating Frozen Shoulder and other shoulder conditions

The shoulder is one of the most flexible joints in the body, enabling a wide range of movements. Mr Yanni treats all shoulder conditions for patients living in Darenth.

Common Shoulder Conditions Treated In Darenth

  • Rotator Cuff Tear: These can be full or partial tears to the rotator cuff, and patients will experience varying levels of discomfort. Common symptoms include weakness, stiffness, and pain when resting at night, which may interrupt normal sleep patterns.
  • Frozen Shoulder: As the name implies, Frozen Shoulder causes the shoulder to stiffen. Other symptoms may include pain or a dull ache, limited movement, or difficulty performing everyday tasks such as brushing your hair or putting on a seatbelt.
  • Shoulder impingement: This is a condition of inflammation of the shoulder tendons of the shoulder joint, and it is one of the most common reasons for shoulder pain.
  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: A dislocated shoulder is where the ball of the shoulder joint becomes detached from the socket. This can be caused by trauma or injury. Once a shoulder has been dislocated, it becomes vulnerable to repeat occurrences.
  • This condition is the inflammation of the tendons of the shoulder joint. It may cause severe pain at rest and during activities.

Hand & Wrist Conditions Treated In Darenth

  • Trigger finger: This is a prevalent condition where the finger or thumb becomes stuck in the bent position. It may straighten with a snap, like a trigger being pulled.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: This common condition results in the compression of the median nerve at the wrist, where it passes through the ‘carpal tunnel’. The most common symptoms are pain or tingling.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This is an inherited and non-painful condition that causes abnormally thickened tissue that forms nodules or cords in the palm of the hand. These contract over time, drawing the fingers into the palm.
  • Tendonitis: This is the irritation or inflammation of the tendons in the hand or wrist, which may cause pain or restricted movement.
  • Base of thumb arthritis or wrist arthritis: As the cartilage breaks down, this causes bones to rub together, causing pain and a grating sensation when moving.
  • RSI: Repetitive strain injury (RSI) can cause a burning, aching or shooting sensation in the muscles, nerves, and tendons.

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 - Darenth 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.”
