Experienced shoulder surgeon near New Eltham

Mr Yanni can evaluate and treat patients with shoulder problems near New Eltham or Ruxley and can offer innovative and successful shoulder surgery and care.

  • Frozen Shoulder: Frozen Shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis results in restricted movement and pain, both when performing certain movements or when at rest.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: A tear to the rotator cuff will cause pain, swelling, and a loss of mobility.
  • Shoulder Impingement: Those people suffering from shoulder impingement often report pain when performing ‘overhead’ activities such as reaching up high or behind their backs. It also results in pain at night and a decreased range of movement.
  • Shoulder Instability & dislocation: A shoulder dislocation occurs when the bone in the upper arm – the humerus – comes out of the socket. This is normally due to a sudden blow or fall. Once the shoulder has dislocated, it can become unstable and dislocate more frequently.
