Shoulder and elbow clinic


The Shoulder and Elbow Unit at St Joseph’s Hospital has been established for many years and enjoys an excellent reputation. It is dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and research of injuries and musculoskeletal conditions affecting the shoulder and elbow.


The unit treats all shoulder and elbow problems, including sports injuries, complex or revision procedures, trauma and conditions associated with aging.

Our team has close links with many national and regional sporting organisations. We treat players from a majority of the Welsh rugby clubs as well as elite athletes from other sports including tennis, athletics and football.

Led by four of the UK's top orthopaedic surgeons, the Shoulder Unit can provide consultations, specialist imaging, physiotherapy and state-of-the-art surgical facilities under one roof.

The Shoulder Unit is fully equipped to surgically and conservatively manage shoulder and elbow disorders utilising the latest techniques and state-of-the-art technology. Our consultants are specialists in keyhole surgery which is less painful and has shorter recovery times than conventional open surgery.

Please contact us today if would like further information on the Unit or wish to book an appointment.
