Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Shane Clarke at Spire include:
I qualified from St Mary's Hospital in London in 1991. I have since acquired a thorough training in rheumatology and osteoporosis working in London, Sydney, the National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases (Bath) and Bristol. I completed his medical doctorate (MD) on the use of DXA for osteoarthritis and was awarded a prestigious ARC Medical Education Fellowship to study shoulder and knee pain.
I was appointed consultant in rheumatology at Weston Area Health Trust in 2003. There I developed direct access services for patients with rheumatoid arthritis and a brand new diagnostic and management service for patients with osteoporosis. Both initiatives have been very popular with patients. In 2007 I co-authored the ARMA National Guidelines: Management of Regional Musculoskeletal Pain in spare time and served nationally on the ARC Education Sub-committee and ERAN Research and Education Committee. I was appointed Assistant Dean at the Trust and an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Bristol.
In 2009, I moved to University Hospitals of Bristol to take over the osteoporosis service. Referrals to the service have increased substantially. I was invited to form part of an inspection team assessing hip fracture and osteoporosis services in the South West as part of a Department of Health Initiative. In 2010 I co-ordinated the production of a set of regional osteoporosis guidelines that have been adopted by local commissioning (PCT) bodies regionally.
I am medical advisor to the National Osteoporosis Society Groups in both Weston-super-Mare and Bristol.
To date I have written over 40 scientific articles including a review article on Osteoporosis guidelines for a national GP publication and a chapter on osteoarthritis for the University of Bath Diploma Course. He is a referee to the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases and Age & Aging.

A qualified biologist, I am very much at home exploring rock pools in my native South Devon. Also a keen gardener I divide my spare time between my family, renovating an old Victorian pile, and 5-a-side soccer on a Wednesday night. Ambitions are to spend more time walking in the country with my family and finishing the chicken run.Back to top
