Mr Barnes Morgan
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
FRCS (Tr & Orth), MSc, BSc, MBBS
"I’m delighted to join the team at Spire Manchester. Its state-of-the-art, modern facilities will help me to deliver the very best quality of care to my patients in a convenient location."
I'm a Consultant Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgeon specialising in the care of patients with disorders of the shoulder and the elbow. My special interests include arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery for soft tissue tendon injuries, shoulder instability and joint replacement surgery for shoulder arthritis. I have a specialist interest in both sports injuries and degenerative conditions of the shoulder. I have an advanced practice in the management of complex tendon injuries and irreparable tendon injuries. I also provide surgical treatments for tennis and golfer’s elbow (including PRP injections) and have expertise in the treatment of fractures and traumatic injuries to the shoulder.
I developed my expertise from holding UK shoulder fellowship posts at Stepping Hill Hospital, followed by an upper limb fellowship at the internationally renowned Wrightington Upper Limb Unit.
I perform office shoulder ultrasound when appropriate. This provides immediate diagnostic information to patients at their first clinic appointment, speeding the process of diagnosis and therefore treatment of diseases and injuries.
In addition to my surgical qualifications, I have a BSc in Neuroscience and an MSc in Trauma Surgery. I lecture nationally and internationally on shoulder surgery and I'm involved in running a national arthroscopic shoulder surgery course. I'm passionate about teaching and training, and was honoured to be nominated by my trainees for a Health Education England School of Surgery Excellence in Education Award 2019-20.
My innovative, outcome-led practice is represented by my regular publications in international peer-reviewed journals and presentations at international meetings. I have an active interest in research and regularly publish in medical journals and was part of the team who were awarded the Ian Kelly Prize for research at BESS Dublin 2016.
In 2018, with Chris Peach, I was awarded a GHP Private Healthcare Award for Best Sports Injury Therapy Specialists for North West England and in 2019 was awarded 'Leaders in Sports Injury Treatment 2019 – North West England'. My expertise in healthcare delivery has been recognised by Stepping Hill Hospital in granting me three Clinical Excellence Award Points.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Barnes Morgan at Spire include:
Mr Barnes Morgan, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, describes the anatomy of the shoulder joint and how an impingement manifests when there is an inflammation of the tendons. Diagnosis is carried out with ultrasound or an MRI scan. Treatment of shoulder impingement is carried under general anaesthesia as a day case procedure.
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Manchester Hospital.
