Course Summary

The research interests is mainly clinical, upper limb surgery, peripheral nerve surgery, and surgery for musculoskeletal tumour.

Overview

There is considerable overlap between the basic science and clinical areas of research. Regarding basic science the areas include mesothelial cell function in a number of scenarios (tumours, tendon degeneration etc) and EMG studies in common upper limb pathologies such as tennis elbow and rotator cuff pathologies. The clinical research is orientated to understand the physiological basis of conditions that are frequently encountered in the clinic and to develop new treatment strategies.

Professor Simon Frostick has developed a number of new operations for reconstruction of major upper limb pathologies and has promoted other new techniques into the UK, for example, shoulder arthroscopy.

Our research interests
