Mr Graham Tytherleigh-Strong, consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital now holds his practice at the dedicated facility offering “one stop diagnosis to consultation” for patients further afield negating the need for frequent visits to the hospital.
|Mr Graham Tytherleigh-Strong specialises in shoulder and elbow surgery and has extensive experience in his field having trained in the UK, Europe and North America. He treats a broad range of shoulder and elbow problems including dislocations, rotator cuff problems, arthritis and fractures. He has a particular interest in arthroscopic surgery and is an innovator in keyhole surgery in this specialty.
Graham said “Many of my patients travel from outside of Cambridge to see me and with the full capability of the imaging department at the Lea with their extended opening hours it made sense to offer a “same day” service to enable patients to obtain an MRI scan to confirm a diagnosis and instigate an immediate treatment plan. This will enhance our service and allow a fast track, efficient pathway”.
Graham said “It is often difficult to adequately assess the severity of a shoulder injury and the structures damaged following sports injuries, a simple muscle strain can appear very similar to a more serious injury. Advances in the understanding and diagnosis of these injuries has been led by an increased use of MRI and ultrasound scans. This, in turn, has allowed for earlier and more effective treatment of conditions by a combination of physiotherapy and rehabilitation and the use of arthroscopic surgery (keyhole surgery).”
