Mr Nasir Shah

Consultant Orthopaedic and Upper Limb Surgeon


Specialises in

  • Arthroscopic shoulder surgery
  • Shoulder replacement surgery
  • Hand, wrist and elbow surgery
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Dupuytren's disease

I undertake arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder for impingement syndrome, frozen shoulder, shoulder instability as well as arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Also, I perform shoulder replacement surgery including reverse shoulder replacement. I work exclusively with disorders of the hand and upper limb. I have been working in the field of orthopaedics for the past 16 years and specialise in all aspects including fractures of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder and peripheral nerve problems.

My practice includes the management of common disorders of the upper limb such as nerve entrapments (carpal tunnel syndrome etc), trigger fingers, ganglions, Dupuytren's disease and arthritis of the hand and wrist. I also perform finger joint replacement and wrist stabilisation surgery. To date, I have successfully performed over 1400 carpal tunnel releases and over 600 Dupuytren's. I have also carried out more than 1000 arthroscopic procedures on the shoulder and over 100 shoulder replacements including reverse shoulder replacement.

I am also competent in complex upper limb trauma.

In addition to my clinical work, I am extremely proud of holding the post of a senior honorary lecturer at Edge Hill University. I find the role very enjoyable.
