My Promise To You

When you come to my Hand Clinic, I will do my best to diagnose your problem, learn about what you want and help you decide what is best for you. I will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each potential treatment. Although surgical treatment might be needed, wherever possible we try safe and simple non-operative treatments such as therapy and injections. When these methods have been tried or are not suitable then between we will consider and decide on the best surgical options together.

My approach to practice and delivering the best for my patients is centred on a team effort. When you contact the Hand Clinic, my personal assistant Rachel will make an appointment to suit you. My own dedicated Hand Therapy team will provide very thorough support. If you need surgery then my anaesthetic colleague Dr Max Jonas will explain everything to you and make the procedure perfectly safe.

I am always happy to respond to a telephone call or email at any time to discuss any aspects of your care.
