The shoulder and elbow services forms part of the Isle of Wight Upper Limb Unit. As a unit we aim to provide the best possible care for our patients by continually developing our services and remaining at the forefront of upper limb surgery. We aim to achieve this by continuous evaluation of our service and involvement in clinical research.
Our team consists of:
|Mr D Gheorghiu
||Natasha Locans||01983 534856|
|Mr J Scadden||Jennifer Deavall/
We treat all conditions around the shoulder and elbow but have recognised expertise in the following areas:
If you wish to find information about a specific problem or operation you may find this in one of our patient information leaflets.
If you require a clinic appointment or wish to enquire about your appointment you can contact the outpatient department on 01983 534161.
Our clinics take place on Fridays when the consultants are in clinic together. Where possible we offer a one stop service meaning we can perform clinical assessment, x-rays and further investigations on the same day. This will often mean a definitive treatment plan is put into place on the same day as the visit. If more specialist and time consuming investigations are required these will not be performed on the same day.
We work closely as a team and with other departments particularly radiology and physiotherapy services. Physiotherapy is a critical part of the treatment of problems around the shoulder and elbow. Working closely with us is a specialist therapists who has an extended role. The extended role allows the therapists to be in the out patient clinic with the consultant. For the most complex problems, decisions regarding the best treatment for an individual will be a joint decision made between the treating consultant, specialist physiotherapist and patient.
