Our expertise extends to the precise removal of tumours and benign growths in the hand and forearm. Utilising the latest surgical methods, we focus on eliminating discomfort and preventing the recurrence of growths, all while preserving the integrity and function of your hands and arms.

Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow

Overuse injuries such as Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow can be debilitating, leading to pain and weakness in the elbow and forearm.

Our clinic specialises in both non-surgical and surgical treatments tailored to alleviate pain and restore strength, ensuring that you can return to your favourite activities without discomfort.

Nerve Entrapment Syndromes

Conditions like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Cubital Tunnel Syndrome result from nerve compression, causing pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm.

We offer a range of treatments, from conservative management to surgical decompression, to relieve pressure on the nerves and restore normal function.

Ganglion Excisions

Ganglions, or cysts that typically develop along the tendons or joints of your wrists or hands, can be unsightly and sometimes painful.

Our approach to ganglion excisions is minimally invasive, focusing on removing the cyst and minimising the risk of recurrence with the least possible discomfort.

Our clinic is at the forefront of treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, a condition that affects millions globally. Through a combination of diagnostic precision and advanced surgical techniques, we aim to relieve the compression of the median nerve, offering relief from pain and numbness in the hand and wrist.
