  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome: Causing tingling and numbness in the hands and fingers, Cubital Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the ulnar nerve becomes injured, inflamed, or swollen.
  • Elbow Arthritis: In simple terms, arthritis is the inflammation of a joint. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage is worn away, causing stiffness, pain, and locking.
  • Golfer’s Elbow & Tennis Elbow: The tendons surrounding the elbow can become susceptible to inflammatory conditions. When the outside of the elbow is affected, this is known as Tennis Elbow and when the inside is affected, this is called Golfer’s Elbow. The cause for both conditions is repetitive stress.

Common Conditions Treated In Green Street

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: This condition affects the median nerve that shares a narrow tunnel, known as the carpal tunnel, with the tendons in the wrist. If the nerve becomes compressed, it can cause tingling and weakness in the hands or wrists.
  • Trigger finger: This condition causes the fingers or thumb to become locked into a bent position towards the palm. The digit can be stiff and uncomfortable and click when it straightens. Small lumps can sometimes appear at the base of the digit.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: This progressive condition causes scarring of the skin on the palm, forcing the fingers to curl into the palm. Specialist surgery is one of the main ways to correct this.
  • Tendonitis: Tendon problems in the hands and wrists are common. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and tenderness.
  • Base of Thumb Arthritis/Wrist Arthritis: Osteoarthritis is common in the trapezium (the cube-shaped bone at the base of the thumb) and the wrist. When the cartilage becomes worn down, it can expose the bone and become painful and stiff.
  • RSI: Caused by overuse and repeating the same movement, Repetitive Strain Injuries are common in the hands and wrists. RSI causes pain, swelling, and a range of other uncomfortable symptoms.

Nuggets of Wisdom


Whilst ganglia as a spontaneous event are extremely common in the young, a cause for a ganglion should always be established in the middle aged and elderly.  These are often secondary to degenerative changes in the carpus. It is also important to confirm the diagnosis for occasionally these can be confused with rare and serious sarcomas.

Suffering from shoulder discomfort in Green Street? Contact our Orthopaedic Shoulder Consultant

The main shoulder joint – the glenohumeral – is a ‘ball and socket’ joint, featuring a ball that fits into the socket, allowing for a wide range of movements. If you are based in Green Street and suffering from shoulder pain or are struggling with a range of movement, Mr Yanni can treat it for you.

  • Frozen Shoulder: If you have a Frozen Shoulder, the capsule around the joint has become too tight. It can occur after an injury and is common with people who have diabetes. The pain can be severe, particularly at night.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: A torn rotator cuff is most frequently seen in people over the age of 40 and can be painful and make it difficult to raise your arm properly.
  • Shoulder Impingement: The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that keeps the bone in the socket. Pain in this area is called shoulder impingement and it can cause further problems, such as Shoulder Bursitis. You may find it hard to raise your arm above your head. This condition can also sometimes be called Painful Arc Syndrome.
  • Shoulder Instability: The shoulder is very mobile and when the ball comes out of the socket either fully or partially (i.e. dislocated), it can make the whole joint to become unstable. Once the joint has dislocated once, it is more likely to happen in the future.
