An experienced and pioneering Nottingham-based orthopaedic surgeon offering all the latest surgical techniques for the treatment of conditions affecting the shoulder and elbow, including arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery, 24 hour admission joint replacement surgery and the use of regional anaesthesia.
Mr Lars Neumann was Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the University Hospitals, Nottingham, from 1995 to 2011. Specialising exclusively in the field of shoulder and elbow surgery, he now treats both private and NHS patients at BMI The Park Hospital, Nottingham.
An innovative and experienced shoulder surgeon in Nottingham
Trained in Nottingham and Denmark, Mr Neumann's academic and clinical work is dedicated to surgery of the shoulder and elbow. He stays up to date with all the latest surgical developments and has been involved in the design of various instruments, ligament substitutes and a shoulder replacement system, as well as the creation of novel surgical techniques.
Most significantly for his patients, together with his anaesthetist colleague Dr Andrew Dyson, Mr Neumann has developed procedures that make surgery as short and safe as possible. He performs all surgical procedures under regional anaesthesia, unless otherwise requested, with the majority of operations being performed arthroscopically as day case surgery. Where an open procedure is necessary, as in the case of replacement of the shoulder or elbow, he aims is to discharge the patient within 24 hours, although this is dependent on the particular circumstances.
Conditions treated by Mr Lars Neumann
Mr Lars Neumann provides surgical treatment of all conditions affecting the shoulder and elbow, including:
- Shoulder and elbow instability
- Frozen shoulder
- Disorders of the rotator cuff
- Disorders of the acromioclavicular joint (ACJ)
Tennis or golfer's elbow
- Olecranon bursitis
- Nerve compression
- Trauma to the shoulder and elbow, including fractures
- Sports injuries
Expert treatment of rotator cuff problems
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that keep the shoulder joint in the correct position. Injury or inflammation of the rotator cuff is the most common cause of shoulder pain and weakness in the UK, and it is estimated that approximately 50% of people aged over 60 will have a partial or complete tear of their rotator cuff due to normal wear and tear.
Mr Neumann offers expert arthroscopic surgical repair of rotator cuff tears and problems that have not improved after other treatment options have failed. The operation typically takes between three quarters and one hour and involves shaving a small amount of material off the bones in the shoulder and removing any damaged tendons or fluid-filled sacs, if necessary. This creates space for the rotator cuff to move freely once more, relieving any pain. Strength in the shoulder can be regained with regular physiotherapy and exercises, although it is not always possible to regain the level of strength that was there before the damage was sustained.
