Orthopaedic upper limb specialities
Mr Hearnden specialises exclusively in upper limb surgery of the hand, wrist, shoulder and elbow. His surgery uses advanced arthroscopic and minimally invasive methods and offers a comprehensive multidisciplinary upper limb service, through close links with referring therapists and clinicians.
This is the treatment of bones and joints following trauma or disease. Surgery is conducted by an orthopaedic surgeon and includes procedures such as shoulder, elbow, and hand & wrist surgery. Back conditions are dealt with under the separate specialty of Spinal surgery.
Hand and Wrist Surgery is a sub specialty undertaken by both orthopaedic and plastic surgeons. Hand surgery is available for children and adults for acquired conditions and trauma. The correct surgical treatment of initial injuries is of paramount importance. If initial treatment is poor, this can adversely affect the outcome and subsequent reconstructive attempts to correct this may therefore become complex unnecessarily.
