Mr Richard Sinnerton: Harley Street orthopaedic surgeon
Mr Richard Sinnerton, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
Specialist in arthroscopic (keyhole) operations, shoulder surgery, elbow surgery, and reverse geometry shoulder replacement
Richard J Sinnerton, FRCS (Orth) trained as a doctor at St. Thomas’ Hospital Medical School and as a specialist surgeon at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.
In 1996 he was selected to spend a year in Nice, France working as Fellow to Professor Boileau and it was this relationship that inspired him to become a shoulder specialist. On returning to the UK he was appointed as a consultant at Ashford/St. Peters Hospitals where he set up and ran the very successful Upper Limb Service. He now works fully in the independent sector.
Shoulder replacement surgery
Mr Sinnerton treats all conditions affecting the shoulder and elbow whether caused accidentaly, from sports injuries, or due to arthritis or congenital problems. He uses the best of the new technological advances to help his patients in particular arthroscopic (keyhole) operations that minimise scarring and allow a faster recovery.
He has developed a national and international reputation in the use of ‘reverse geometry shoulder replacement’ to treat severely arthritic shoulders. He recently published an article on shoulder replacement in the leading orthopaedic journal and in the past year has been invited to lecture on and demonstrate this procedure at prestigious meetings in the US and France.
He is the shoulder and elbow specialist in a number of private clinics in Berkshire, Surrey and London (Windsor, Woking, Ashtead and Harley Street) with regular clinics through the week and in the evenings.
An artificial shoulder implant
Until recently the shoulder had been the forgotten joint. Over the last decade there have been major advances in understanding, diagnosing and treating the many arthritic, traumatic and sports injuries that effect it.
