Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon celebrates 20 years of being a shoulder and elbow surgeon in York

Mr Hywel Williams, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon is celebrating 20 years of caring for the people of York and surrounding areas. Mr Williams was appointed as a consultant at York Hospital in 1999 and started working at Clifton Park Hospital in 2006 as one of their orthopaedic specialist surgeons.

Former patient of Mr Williams, Heather Brett recently visited Clifton Park Hospital for a follow up appointment and is delighted that her elbow replacement is still going strong-19 years after her surgery. Before choosing to have her surgery with Mr Williams, Heather was unable to work, drive or carry her children without experiencing tremendous pain and was told that she needed elbow replacement surgery. 

Heather said: "19 years on and my elbow is still going strong. The surgery enabled me to return to work for another 15 years, bring up my two daughters and live a happy productive life. My quality of life now means I can also now enjoy time with my grandchildren, which previously I thought wouldn’t be possible."

When asked about her experience, Heather said: “Mr Williams and his clinical staff were brilliant from start to finish. Everyone was so supportive, caring and informative."

Mr Williams treats a wide range of conditions of the shoulder and elbow for private, insured and NHS patients. He has extensive experience in treating instability problems, rotator cuff pathology, and performing joint replacement surgery for arthritis of both the shoulder and elbow. Many conditions can be treated using keyhole surgery. For conditions that do not require surgery, Mr Williams can arrange treatment through the highly qualified and experienced physiotherapy team at Clifton Park Hospital.
