I regularly publish in peer-reviewed journals receiving numerous research prizes and I present regularly at national and international scientific meetings. I have contributed to major textbooks, review for the top hand and wrist publications and maintain an active interest in medical law.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Michael Elvey at Spire include:

Carpal tunnel syndrome: Symptoms, causes and diagnosis
Mr Michael Elvey, Consultant Orthopaedic Hand and Wrist Surgeon, says carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition affecting the hand. It affects the median nerve, which is one of the primary nerves in the hand that supplies sensation as well as motor control.
Wrist fractures, low thyroid, wrist traumas, and pregnancy are all potential causes. Pain, numbness, and pins and needles are common symptoms that develop gradually.
