shoulder surgery in scotland

Mr. Sunil Sharma FRCS (Tr & Orth)

I specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of the whole spectrum of shoulder and elbow problems.

I was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Queen Margaret hospital, Dunfermline & Victoria hospital, Kirkcaldy, Fife in 2007. My practice offers a ‘one stop’ shoulder clinic to shorten the diagnosis and treatment of patients. The clinic utilises examination techniques, radiographs and shoulder ultrasound, performed by myself at the first consultation if necessary, to diagnosis the shoulder problem. My areas of expertise are shoulder arthroscopy, shoulder replacement including shoulder resurfacing & reverse shoulder arthroplasty, elbow replacement and surgical fixation of shoulder and elbow fractures. My practice is audited using internationally validated scoring systems.
