Orthopaedic surgeon for shoulder pain conditions in Welling

Mr Yanni treats his patients with care and compression and can treat all shoulder pain conditions in Welling.

Common Shoulder Conditions Treated In Welling

  • Rotator Cuff Tear: A rotator cuff injury can be a common cause of shoulder pain and is common in athletes but can also be due to wear and tear and trauma to the tendons over time. It can lead to shoulder weakness, and treatment is necessary to help the problem.
  • Frozen Shoulder: This is a condition where the shoulder capsule becomes inflamed and forms scar tissue. This can cause stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. Symptoms include progressive shoulder pain and stiffness.
  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: The shoulder is a ball and socket joint, like the hip, but it is very shallow, so when the mechanisms fail due to wear and tear or injury, the shoulder can become partially or fully dislocated. Once this has happened, the shoulder can become unstable, and patients may complain of the sensation that the shoulder is about to come out of the joint.
  • Shoulder Impingement: Pain, tenderness, and an inability to move the shoulder joint fully are common symptoms of shoulder impingement. Patients often complain that they cannot sleep on the affected side due to pain.

Hand and wrist injuries and conditions treated by an orthopaedic consultant near Welling

Hand & Wrist Conditions Treated In Welling

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: This is caused by compression of the median nerve as it passes under the tight strap at the front of the wrist. Sufferers may complain of the feeling of pins and needles or tingling in their fingers.
  • Wrist Arthritis: The wrist is one of the most complex joints in the body and contains eight small bones. Arthritis can wear down any of these joint surfaces causing swelling and pain.
  • Base of Thumb Arthritis: Also known as trapeziometacarpal arthritis, this occurs when the joint between the base of the thumb and the wrist is worn away. It is common in women over the age of 45.
  • Trigger Finger/Trigger Thumb: This results from the tendons catching as they glide underneath the pulleys or straps that hold them in place. In severe cases, the affected finger or thumb may get caught in the bent position.
  • Dupuytren’s Contracture: In this condition, there is a slow thickening of the fascia in the palm and the hand. This starts to pull the fingers inwards and limits their ability to straighten out.
  • Tendonitis: This is the inflammation of one or more tendons in the hand or wrist.
  • RSI: Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) are caused by repetitive movements whilst doing certain activities and can commonly affect the hands and wrists.

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 - Welling 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.”
