Richard J Sinnerton 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. Mr Sinnerton treats all conditions affecting the shoulder and elbow whether caused accidentally, 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
specialist in a number of private clinics in Berkshire and Surrey (Windsor, Woking, and Ashtead) with regular clinics through the week and in the evenings.
