Mr Maulik Gandhi is a Consultant Orthopaedic Consultant in Yorkshire who specialises in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery
Mr Maulik Gandhi has a sub-specialist interest in helping patients suffering with pain or reduced function due to their shoulder or elbow. He takes a holistic approach in understanding patients and their problems. He appreciates that a management plan for one patient, may not be suitable or desirable for another.
Management plans are a shared decision making process and are based on evidence. Not all management plans require surgery, but when they do, he offers:
- key-hole (arthroscopic) shoulder surgery for rotator cuff tears, shoulder stabilisation, SLAP repairs, capsular release for frozen shoulder, calcific tendinopathy, acromio-clavicular joint disruptions or arthritis
- open shoulder surgery to deal with arthritis (shoulder replacements), acute/delayed surgery to deal with fractures (or sequalae of trauma) of the shoulder and humerus
- open surgery around the elbow to deal with tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), ulnar nerve entrapment (cubital tunnel syndrome), biceps tendon ruptures, olecranon bursitis, elbow arthritis/stiffness and elbow fractures.
- carpal tunnel decompression
BSc (Hons), MBChB (Hons), MPhil, MRCS, FRCS (Tr & Orth), MFSTEd.
