About me

Chris Peach is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in treating disorders of the shoulder and the elbow and traumatic injuries of the entire upper limb. His expertise in arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery of the shoulder and the elbow is recognised worldwide. This method of treatment enhances the rapid recovery of sporting injuries.

Chris graduated as a doctor from Imperial College School of Medicine and trained as an Orthopaedic Surgeon in London, Oxford and the North West. He spent two years undertaking a post-graduate research degree at the University of Oxford, having been awarded the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Fellowship and examined the genetic basis of Osteoarthritis of the Shoulder.

Chris trained as a specialist surgical fellow in the Upper Limb Unit at Wrightington Hospital under Prof Ian Trail, Prof Len Funk and Mr John Haines. He also was awarded the Sheffield Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship and trained at the internationally recognised Northern General Hospital Upper Limb Unit with Mr David Stanley and Mr David Potter. He has also trained at the Mayo Clinic in the United States with Dr Shawn O'Driscoll who is recognised as a world leader in complex elbow surgery. In 2013 he was awarded the British Elbow and Shoulder Society coveted North American Elbow Fellowship to further develop his experience in complex elbow surgery in the United States working with other leaders in the field.

He leads a research group at the University of Manchester and has been awarded a Royal College of Surgeons of England Pump Priming Grant to further research into bioabsorbable implants for fracture surgery. His clinical research has been awarded another national award and is currently examining how to get patients back to their activities as soon as possible after shoulder surgery (something our patients tell us is most important to them).
