Dunton Green private shoulder surgery

Our shoulders are one of the most flexible joints in our bodies and due to their range of movement, they can be prone to injuries and wear and tear. If you are looking for a shoulder specialist near Dunton Green, Mr Yanni can help.

  • Frozen Shoulder: Adhesive Capsulitis is a common shoulder condition that occurs when the flexible tissue around the shoulder joint, known as the capsule, becomes inflamed. This can cause pain and restricted movement.
  • Shoulder Dislocation: As the body’s most mobile joint, shoulder dislocations can be common. Once a shoulder has dislocated once, it can become unstable and prone to further dislocations.
  • Shoulder Impingement: One of the most common complaints relating to shoulder pain is impingement, where the shoulder blade rubs against the tendon or the bursa. This results in irritation and pain.
  • Rotator Cuff Tears: Rotator Cuff Tears are a common cause of shoulder pain and make daily activities like brushing your hair and getting dressed more painful.
