Consultant Sports Injury Specialist, London: Joydeep Sinha
Consultant Sports Injury Specialist, London: Mr Joydeep Sinha
An experienced upper limb surgeon with a special interest in the treatment of sports injuries affecting the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, based in London.

Mr Joydeep Sinha is Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Clinical Director for Surgery at King's College Hospital, London.  He provides private treatment for upper limb sports injuries at three locations in London: London Bridge Hospital, Blackheath Hospital and Guthrie Clinic at King's College Hospital.  He is also available for consultation at Old Broad Street Clinic in the City of London.

Expert treatment for sports injuries affecting the upper limb in London

Following medical, surgical and orthopaedic training in Manchester and London, Mr Sinha completed specialist training in upper limb and trauma surgery at leading hospitals in the USA and UK, including the renowned Wrightington Hospital in Wigan.  He has held many high profile roles at King's College Hospital and, as a respected expert on upper limb injuries, is in demand as a lecturer, both nationally and internationally.

In addition to his busy NHS practice, Mr Sinha works in collaboration with fellow upper limb specialists, radiologists, physiotherapists and hand therapists at The London and Kent Shoulder Unit to provide a comprehensive service for patients with sports-related injuries affecting the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder.

Sports injuries treated by Mr Joydeep Sinha

Mr Sinha offers treatment for a number sports injuries affecting the upper limb, including:

  • Fractures
  • Dislocations and instability
  • Acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) injuries
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Subacromial impingement
  • Superior labral anterior--posterior (SLAP) tears
  • Labral and Bankart tears
  • Biceps injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Ligament damage to the hand and fingers

Arthroscopic surgery for the diagnosis and treatment of elbow and shoulder injuries

Mr Sinha is highly experienced in the use of arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery to diagnose and treat injuries to the elbow and shoulder in sportspeople.  Using a fine fibre optic probe with an attached camera, he is able to view the insides of the joints and identify any damage to bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. He can then go on to treat many common injuries such as dislocations, ACJ injuries, tendon tears and impingement problems caused by bony spurs using tiny instruments attached to the probe. 

Compared to open surgery, arthroscopic elbow and shoulder surgery is associated with less scarring, less surgical trauma, less postoperative pain and quicker recovery times.  It is also useful where there is a danger of damaging overlying structures, however there are cases where an open procedure may be more appropriate and Mr Sinha is able to offer his expert opinion in each particular case.
