Mr DJ Watkinson, Consultant Elbow and Shoulder Specialist, Portsmouth, Hampshire

Treating all your elbow and shoulder problems in Portsmouth, Hampshire, West Sussex and beyond

I am a Portsmouth based Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who is a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of elbow and shoulder conditions.  I offer the latest non-surgical therapies such as platelet rich plasma injections (PRP) and extracorporeal shockwave treatment (ESWT), and I work closely with a number of experienced physiotherapists in the Hampshire and West Sussex regions. If an operation is necessary, I favour keyhole surgery (arthroscopy) in order to reduce scarring and pain as well as promoting a more speedy recovery.
