CR0 orthopaedic shoulder consultant

The shoulder is a ‘ball and socket’ joint and is the most flexible joint in the body, making it extremely susceptible to injury. Mr Yanni provides both surgical and non-surgical treatments for a wide range of conditions relating to the shoulder to New Addington patients.

  • Frozen Shoulder: Also called adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder causes pain and a loss of movement. It is more common in women than men.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: The rotator cuff is a group of tendons that provide support to the shoulder and enable a wider range of movement. Injury to these tendons can result in a tear that gives rise to severe pain, stiffness, swelling, and weakness.
  • Shoulder Impingement: Caused by inflammation of the tendons in the shoulder joint, symptoms include severe pain whilst resting or working.
  • Shoulder Instability: This is a chronic condition that can cause frequent dislocations of the shoulder. The most common symptom is pain with certain movements of the shoulder.
