About me

Mr Ibrahim is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in injuries and painful conditions affecting the arm, including nerve problems. He strongly believes in the importance of making an accurate diagnosis for his patients and in each instance incorporates his latest research knowledge of the biomechanical reasons for the problem. This approach allows him to advise his patients on treatment options that will maximise chances of recovery and minimise risk of recurrence.

Mr Ibrahim’s practice philosophy is that the majority of conditions are best treated without surgery. However, if an operation is needed Mr Ibrahim is highly skilled in a full range of shoulder, upper arm, elbow, forearm and wrist procedures including the latest minimally invasive keyhole techniques.

Some of the most common conditions that Mr Ibrahim treats include rotator cuff tears/impingement, bursitis, frozen shoulder, first-time/repeated shoulder dislocation, biceps tears, shoulder and elbow arthritis, tennis and golfer’s elbow, cubital tunnel syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome. He also treats patients with fractures and dislocations affecting the shoulder, upper arm, elbow, forearm and wrist.

Mr Ibrahim graduated from University College London with distinction and a first-class honours degree in Orthopaedics, including accredited Orthopaedic training at Harvard Medical School. Following basic surgical training in the Oxford School of Surgery, when he also taught Anatomy at Oxford University, he completed higher Orthopaedic training on the prestigious Imperial College London rotation. During this time, he was awarded first prize for a master’s degree in Surgical Education. His thesis on how an Orthopaedic Surgeon should prepare for complex surgery was the first of its kind and has been published as a peer-reviewed article and a book chapter.

Mr Ibrahim completed further training in nerve surgery at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and specialist fellowship training in upper limb surgery at the Royal Derby ‘Superhospital’, including the world famous Pulvertaft Hand and Wrist Unit. He was a travelling fellow of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society, learning from renowned surgeons in Lyon and Stockholm. He is also a British Orthopaedic Association Clinical Leader and was sponsored to successfully create the UK’s first Enhanced Recovery Programme for shoulder replacement surgery.

Mr Ibrahim captained the University of London at tennis and still represents The Queen’s Club in competition. His continued involvement in sport has presented him with a unique understanding of the necessary treatment for patients who want to return to play in racket and other overhead sports.
