Orthopaedic Procedures Offered and Conditions Treated
Problems arising from the upper limb both in the form of acute, new injuries and chronic, long-term conditions can lead to considerable pain and disability. There may also be a significant financial impact with lost income through inability to work.
The treatments I offer are for a wide range of arthritic conditions, fractures and sports-related injuries to the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. My services are available across Bristol, Weston-super-Mare, Bath, Newport and local nearby areas.
You may not know which procedure, if any, is necessary for you, or you may have already received some medical advice about surgical options. We can discuss these in detail together during your consultation, to ensure we tailor an individual plan that is right for you. The orthopaedic services are available privately or through NHS via GP referrals in Bristol. You can find out more information about the locations of the practices here.

Injury, Orthopaedic Treatment and Recovery in Bristol
Have you suffered from long-term conditions affecting your shoulders, elbows, wrists or hands? Maybe you have had a sports injury that has caused you pain and discomfort? If the answer is yes, then the first step to your recovery and rehabilitation should be to seek a professional diagnosis. Being an orthopaedic surgeon based in Bristol, I have helped many patients with a wide range of injury treatments and procedures on the upper limbs. The orthopaedic services are also accessible to patients living in Weston-super-Mare, Bath, Newport and nearby areas.
The services at Philip McCann’s surgical clinic provide specialised care and treatment ranging from upper limb arthroscopy to shoulder replacement. Arthroscopy is also known as keyhole surgery and allows the surgeon to look inside the joint with a small camera to treat the shoulder, elbow and wrist. This is a procedure that usually leads to speedier recovery than traditional open surgery. In most cases, surgery can be performed as a daycase procedure, avoiding an overnight hospital stay. If you have suffered major trauma to your shoulder or any part of the upper limb, then an operation to replace worn out or damaged joints and tissue might be required.
