Sunil Sharma  shoulder surgery in scotland

 FRCS (Tr & Orth), FRCS (Glasg), FRCS (Edin), D.N.B. & Diploma (Ortho)
I underwent my Orthopaedic training in Glasgow and the West of Scotland region before embarking on sub-specialty training in shoulder surgery. My expertise in shoulder surgery was attained from a 1-year fellowship at the internationally renowned Reading Shoulder Unit under the supervision of Mr. Stephen Copeland and Mr. Ofer Levy.    I was also awarded the Scottish travelling fellowship and British Elbow and Shoulder Society North American travelling fellowship, in 2006 - 2007.  These travelling fellowships allowed me to visit shoulder surgeons in Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Clinique Générale, Annecy, France.   I am actively involved in teaching and research.   I am a faculty member on shoulder arthroscopy and shoulder arthroplasty courses.
