About

Mr Richard Sinnerton is an Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in shoulder, elbow and simple hand conditions. He trained as a doctor at St. Thomas' Hospital, where he started in 1983. His speciality training in orthopaedics was based at St. Mary’s Hospital in London and he became a consultant in 1998. His interest in shoulder surgery came about through meeting and working with Professor Pascal Boileau, widely recognised as one of the world's leading shoulder experts. Mr. Sinnerton spent a year as his Fellow in Nice in 1996. Following his return to the UK, he was appointed as a consultant at Ashford/St. Peters Hospital where he set up the very successful Upper Limb Unit. He now works full-time as an independent surgeon seeing both private and NHS patients.

Mr Sinnerton treats all conditions of the shoulder amd elbow and simple hand conditions whether caused by accident or over-use, through a sporting injury or arthritic and congenital problems. He selects the best of the new medical technologies to use along side tried and tested traditional techniques to provide the best tailored answer for each individual's concerns. His belief is that most patients, once diagnosed, only need time, rehabilitation and medication, surgery being required only if the symptoms recur.

He has developed a national and international reputation for using Reverse Geometry Shoulder Replacements to treat some of the most complex and disabling shoulder problems for which, until a few years ago, there was no solution. He teaches other surgeons this technique and recently was invited by the leading orthopaedic journal to write the definitive article on shoulder replacement.

He works very closely with selected specialist theatre nurses, anaesthetists and physiotherapists to ensure that the patient is looked after from their first visit through to their return to full and pain free function.

This splendid no-nonsense surgeon treated me as an equal human being with respect but no signs of condescension. Straightforward, to the point, explained what needed to be explained and with good humour. I suppose more to the point the operation was a great success and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. Totally excellent.

Before I was even seen by Mr Sinnerton I found his website really helpful and easy to navigate with the right level of information. Appointments were quick but I felt that was because he really knew his subject!
