In 1996-7 Mr Williams completed his orthopaedic training with a prestigious one-year shoulder fellowship under the guidance of the world-renowned shoulder surgeon, Mr Stephen Copeland. He spent some of this year gaining further experience from leading experts in the field of shoulder surgery in Germany and Austria.
His philosophy is that every person is unique, and he is able to apply his experience and expertise to your individual situation in order to gain the best possible results for you.
If you do have any concern about pain or restriction in movement, or have suffered an injury to your shoulder or elbow, the only real way to learn about what it is and what can be done for you is to see a dedicated specialist.
