About me

My name is Robin Seagger. In April 2012 I took up a post as a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at Pennine Acute Trust. My NHS trauma and elective practices are undertaken at both The Royal Oldham Hospital and Rochdale Infirmary.
I have a subspecialist interest in the diagnosis and treatment of the whole spectrum of problems related to the shoulder girdle and elbow, including all arthroscopic procedures of the shoulder and open procedures of the shoulder and elbow. Operations I perform include advanced arthroscopic surgery for instability and rotator cuff problems, impingement, frozen shoulder and complex open procedures including joint replacement surgery for arthritis (joint resurfacing, hemiarthroplasty, total shoulder replacement and reverse polarity shoulder replacement). I regularly undertake carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve decompressions and both traditional procedures and radio-frequency ablation for tennis and golfers’ elbow. In addition to this I treat a full range of trauma and fractures around the shoulder, clavicle and elbow.
I am regularly referred patients with complex shoulder problems from other local orthopaedic surgeons. My primary concern is with obtaining optimal results for my patients. The management goals can range from the reduction of pain and dysfunction to return to high level sporting activities and are individually tailored to meet the patients’ needs. I actively audit my practice, using internationally validated scoring systems with reliable and favourable results.
I studied at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, London, where I qualified as a doctor in 1998. I undertook my orthopaedic training in the Severn Deanery (Bristol area) before embarking on sub-specialty training in shoulder surgery. I was awarded fellowships in Exeter and London under the supervision of Mr Tim Bunker and Mr Andrew Wallace, respectfully, two of the world’s leading arthroscopic shoulder surgeons. I subsequently undertook a further fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at The Avon Orthopaedic Centre, Bristol. During my fellowships I was actively involved both in research and the treatment of numerous world class sportsmen.
During my registrar training I studied for and was awarded a Masters Degree (MSc) in Orthopaedic Engineering from Cardiff University. I have presented and published numerous research papers and articles both at national and international meetings as well as being published frequently in a number of international journals. I am actively involved in the training of other doctors and surgeons and frequently teach on courses including, arthroscopic shoulder surgery courses.
