About me

Ms Susan Alexander is the only female orthopaedic surgeon specialising solely in shoulder surgery in Central London. With over 20 years of experience in all aspects of shoulder surgery, she brings a unique approach to treating shoulder pain.

Having trained in Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery in North-West London, Susan also completed a PhD in Molecular Biology from Imperial College London and an MSc in Applied Biomechanics.

She has presented at international shoulder conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals. She has also organised several shoulder conferences aimed at consultant surgeons.

One of Susan’s primary interests is teaching; she has developed educational courses for all levels, from medical students to senior consultants. She is the current Chair of the Education Committee of the Independent Doctors’ Federation. Susan founded an online resource for learning anatomy, which is popular worldwide.

Susan feels passionate about taking the time to listen to her patients and then organises the appropriate investigations so that a diagnosis is reached quickly, within days or often on the same day. Susan then designs a bespoke treatment plan based on her patient’s individual needs.

Ms Alexander says, “Most people are worried that if they see a shoulder surgeon, they will be offered surgery straightaway. Surgery is always the last option in my practice, and most shoulder problems can be treated without surgery.”
