Recommended orthopaedic shoulder doctor near Westerham

Mr Yanni can offer patients in Westerham the very best in shoulder surgery and non-surgical treatment.

  • Shoulder Impingement: This is the collective name of a range of conditions that give rise to pain that gets worse on lifting the arm.
  • Shoulder Dislocation & Instability: The shoulder has a wide range of movement but this can come at the expense of stability. Once the joint has dislocated once, it can become vulnerable to recurrent episodes.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: The rotator cuff is the term used for the ring of tendons that surround the shoulder joint. If you have a tear in this area, you may experience pain on the top or front of your shoulder. This is normally worse with any activity where you have to raise your arm above shoulder level.
  • Frozen Shoulder: Adhesive Capsulitis is a thickening of the lining of the joint that leads to inflammation and a decreased range of movement. It is a self-limiting condition but this can take several years and many treatment options can help speed recovery.
