Common Conditions Treated In Dulwich

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: When the median nerve is compressed, pressure can build up in the area of the wrist known as the carpal tunnel. When the pressure becomes severe, patients complain of wrist pain, tingling, numbness, and clumsiness in their hand movements.
  • Trigger finger: Trigger Finger or Trigger Thumb are conditions caused by the swelling of the flexor tendons, which bend the fingers into the palm. The tendons normally glide through a series of tunnels and when the tendons swell, they can cause a painful ‘trigger’ when they squeeze through the opening of the tunnel.
  • Base of thumb arthritis or wrist arthritis: Any condition that inflames or destroys a joint is called arthritis. Arthritis is common in both the base of the thumb and the wrist. Symptoms include pain and swelling.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: Also known as Dupuytren’s Disease, this condition is an abnormal thickening of the palmar fascia, which is the fibrous tissue in the palm.
  • Tendonitis: This condition is caused by inflammation of the tendons, which are the cords of tissue that connect muscle to bone. Symptoms include aching pain, swelling, and tenderness to touch.
  • RSI: This is an umbrella term that refers to pain caused by repetitive tasks and exertions.

Private shoulder doctor near Dulwich for shoulder conditions

Are you based in Dulwich and waiting for shoulder surgery? Mr Yanni can ensure minimal waiting times.

  • Shoulder Dislocation: The shoulder joint is a ball and socket joint and falling or wrenching injuries can cause dislocation. Once the shoulder has dislocated, it can become unstable
  • Frozen Shoulder: When the capsule of the shoulder becomes inflamed (capsulitis), this can cause pain over the front and side of the shoulder and down the arm. As the capsule thickens, this leads to Adhesive Capsulitis.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: If there is a tear in the rotator cuff, surgery is often required because the tendon cannot heal itself and it may enlarge in the future.
  • Shoulder impingement: This causes pain especially when reaching overhead and at night if you are lying on the injured shoulder, it can cause sleep disruption.
