About

Mr Pennington graduated with honours, in 2004 from the University of Leeds and subsequently completed all of his surgical training in Yorkshire. In 2013 he was appointed as the sole Fellow on the highly regarded Coventry Shoulder Fellowship with Steve Drew and Tom Lawrence. This gave him a unique experience of a high volume of operating in the whole spectrum of shoulder and elbow surgery. 

He further enhanced his elbow experience by being awarded the British Elbow & Shoulder Society Mayo Elbow Fellowship in 2015; affording him the opportunity to visit and spend time working alongside Dr Shawn O’Driscoll at the Mayo clinic in 2016. 


He was appointed as a Consultant Shoulder & Elbow Surgeon in 2015; his NHS practice is based in Huddersfield & Halifax and his private practice is in Leeds, Huddersfield and Elland.


He has a special interest in total shoulder arthroplasty and arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and reconstructive surgery. He has developed a particular interest in the management of complex primary and revision shoulder arthroplasty cases. He firmly believes in a patient centred approach, and to tailoring your care towards the goals and outcomes that matter most to you.

I selected Mr Pennington for my wife’s shoulder surgery prior to contacting my insurers as it was important that she had a surgeon who specialises in shoulder problems and had a proven record in that field - thankfully the insurers didn’t insist on appointing their own. From the initial consultation through to the actual surgery the treatment, communication and support was first class and I am convinced that with Mr Pennington’s specialist care my wife has the best chance of regaining pain-free use of her shoulder and a vast improvement in the quality of her life. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

Dr Pennington is fantastic. My GP said that I had a rotator cuff injury and gave me some exercises to do which didn’t really do any good. Dr Pennington quickly diagnosed a frozen shoulder and recommended an arthroscopic capsular release, which I had yesterday. I can see an immediate improvement in my range of motion and I am really pleased that I had it done!
