Mr Richard Sinnerton

Resident at:
  • The Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Trust

Mr Richard J Sinnerton is a shoulder and elbow specialist. He trained as a doctor at St Thomas' Hospital Medical School and as a specialist surgeon at St Mary's Hospital in London. In 1996 he was selected to spend a year in Nice, France working as Fellow to Professor Boileau and it was this relationship that inspired him to become a shoulder specialist. On returning to the UK he was appointed as a consultant at Ashford/St Peter's hospitals where he set up and ran the very successful Upper Limb Service. He now works fully in the independent sector.

Mr Sinnerton treats all conditions affecting the shoulder and elbow whether caused accidentaly, from sports injuries, or due to arthritis or congenital problems. He uses the best of the new technological advances to help his patients in particular arthroscopic (keyhole) operations that minimise scarring and allow a faster recovery.

He has developed a national and international reputation in the use of 'reverse geometry shoulder replacement' to treat severely arthritic shoulders. He recently published an article on shoulder replacement in the leading orthopaedic journal and in the past year has been invited to lecture on and demonstrate this procedure at prestigious meetings in the US and France.

Mr Sinnerton consults and operates from clinics in Woking, Windsor, Ashtead, Harley Street and sees NHS patients through the NHS Choose and Book system.
