Languages spoken

English

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who deals with all conditions of the upper limbs and sports injuries. I also specialise in arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery of the shoulder, elbow and wrist for conditions such as frozen shoulder, tendonitis, rotator cuff tear, tennis elbow and arthritis. I work with a team of highly qualified physiotherapists, providing appropriate treatment, and a team of radiologists who perform the highest standard of diagnostic scans and X-rays.

I qualified from Alexandria Medical School in Egypt and undertook my postgraduate training in the UK. I worked in the Birmingham area and then took a Fellowship in limb reconstruction surgery at the University of Sheffield followed by a Specialist Registrar post in Sheffield where I was trained to a very high standard and was involved in many publications throughout the training. I am now a consultant at Good Hope Hospital and Solihull Hospital.

Following my Fellowship training, as part of my sports injury interest, I took Fellowship training in ligament reconstructions and perform joint replacement surgery.

I was selected as one of two European Fellows to take a mini Fellowship in Japan where I learnt many surgical techniques that could be beneficial to patients in Britain.
