About Mr Simon Lambert
Mr Simon Lambert qualified from medical school in 1984 and trained in shoulder and reconstructive surgery on the North West Thames orthopaedic rotation. He went on to complement this with two fellowships in Switzerland, studying shoulder and trauma surgery.
In 1998 Mr Lambert was awarded the prestigious 'Travelling Fellowship to North America' from the European Society for Shoulder and Elbow Surgery
During this time, several papers on various aspects of shoulder and elbow surgery were published (see CV). In 1996 Mr Lambert was appointed consultant to Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust, and developed a specialised shoulder reconstruction and orthopaedic trauma service.
Mr Lambert was appointed consultant to the Problem Shoulder Unit at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore, and to the staff at the Royal Free Hospital in March 2001. He became a full-time consultant at the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital in 2003.
Mr Lambert reviews papers for the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, Journal of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society and the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, to name a few.
Mr Lambert holds an honorary senior lectureship at the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculo-skeletal Science at University College London, based at the Stanmore campus. He has published over 50 papers and ten book chapters on shoulder and elbow conditions. He also has an active research interest in shoulder joint replacement, fractures around the shoulder and management of complex conditions, particularly those involving neurological causes for shoulder pain.
Mr Lambert works very closely with colleagues who consult in the radiology department, neurology and neurological rehabilitation, neurosurgery, rheumatology and pain management, and both physiotherapy and occupational therapy services.
Many patients are asked for their consent to be included in relevant outcome research. Mr Lambert readily participates in BUPA-supported outcome analysis (CHKS data) and subscribes to the online iWantGreatCare
service which collects feedback from patients, in order to improve his services.
