This encompasses all aspects of surgery and is based on the multidisciplinary approach to the surgical and non-surgical treatments of the shoulder and elbow. Patients’ needs, and the use of physiotherapy and interventional radiology techniques, are always considered before surgical solutions are discussed and utilised.
