Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Ali Al-Sabti is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Spire Hartswood in Brentwood, Essex, offering specialist private shoulder surgery and general orthopaedic surgery in our clean and comfortable private hospital.

Mr Ali Al-Sabti completed his medical training in the UK and then worked in Saudi Arabia for seven years before returning to the UK where he has lived since being appointed a consultant orthopaedic surgeon in 1995.

Having elected to specialise in orthopaedics Mr Al-Sabti developed a special interest in arthroscopic surgery at an early stage in his career. As a result of his involvement in sport injuries Mr Al-Sabti became interested in shoulder surgery in athletes, subsequently expanding into the area of shoulder surgery, particularly in arthroscopic shoulder surgery.

At this time, this was a fairly new procedure and over the past few years arthroscopic shoulder surgery has enjoyed an explosion of interest from orthopaedic surgeons. Mr Al-Sabti was fortunate to be at a stage in his career when he could develop this further. Arthroscopic surgery has a clear advantage over open procedures - the field of vision is magnified by about 20 times and thus more detail is available to the surgeon. Also, a number of conditions are best diagnosed and treated arthroscopically. 

Shoulder problems continue to be Mr Al-Sabti's main interest. He keeps up to date with the most recent developments in this field, attending various international courses in America and Europe.

Personal profile:

I have a particular interest in mechanical and electronic gadgets and enjoy flying remote controlled aeroplanes (quite frequently repairing what I break!)

I play football and enjoy snow skiing and am a DIY enthusiast, working a lot in the home, time permitting.

Patient testimonal

"I did nothing for too long and my shoulder froze.  I would see a specialist as soon as possible rather than hope the problem would go away."
