Surgical Procedures

Mr Harry Clitherow is experienced in the evaluation and management of a wide range of shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand conditions. Surgery may not always be required and he will discuss the range of treatment options available. If it is decided that surgery would be of benefit, Harry is experienced in a variety of procedures, including arthroscopic (keyhole) techniques. Every patient is different and the exact treatment offered to you will depend on your own unique set of circumstances.
