Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Stephen Lipscombe at Spire include:
Small joint arthrodesis and arthroplasty, carpal and wrist arthrodesis, trapeziectomy and CMCJ arthroplasty, total wrist arthroplasty, ulnar nerve decompression, tendon surgery / repair and wrist arthroscopy.
I was appointed in 2012 as an orthopaedic upper limb surgeon with a specialist interest in hand and wrist surgery, training and working within the Mersey deanery having merited an honours degree at Liverpool Medical School. I have a strong academic background having completed a first class degree in physiology at Liverpool University where I studied calcium signalling in pancreatic acinar cells. The majority of my orthopaedic surgical experience involves upper limb surgery, having finalised my training with one of the few nationally recognised advanced training post fellowships in hand/wrist surgery and successfully completing the British diploma in hand surgery in 2012.
My surgical practice includes traumatic injuries to the upper limb and elective hand/wrist surgery including nerve disorders (carpal tunnel syndrome and ulnar nerve procedures), ganglion and cyst excision, degenerative and rheumatoid disorders (small joint and wrist fusion) joint replacement (base of thumb, finger joints, and wrist arthroplasty), dupuytrens disease (collagenase injection, fasciectomy, and skin grafting), and minimally invasive wrist arthroscopy procedures.
I am secretary for the Mersey hand group, arranging the quarterly meetings and sponsorship.
