Mr Jacob Der Tavitian
MB ChB, FRCS Ed, FRCS (Tr & Ortho)
I started working at the Spire Hull and East Yorkshire Hospital in 2005, as an orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in shoulder and upper limb surgery. I was a licensed trainee in orthopaedics for six years with one year of research at Leicester University Hospitals. I was then accepted for a fellowship in a shoulder and upper limb centre in Perth (Western Australia) and also at the internationally renowned upper limb centre in Wrightington UK. I am an orthopaedic surgeon with special interest in shoulder surgery, complex arthroscopic shoulder surgery, shoulder and elbow replacement, sport-related injuries and wrist and hand surgery.
I believe in and continue education and training and by doing that I have brought shoulder and upper limb surgery to the state of art position that it is now in Hull and East Yorkshire.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Jacob Der Tavitian at Spire include:
Elbow bursitis, elbow tendonitis, rupture of biceps tendon, shoulder dislocation, shoulder impingement, shoulder joint tear, shoulder replacement, frozen shoulder surgery, tennis/golfers elbow, wrist arthroscopy and wrist joint replacement.
Spire Hull and East Riding Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
