About Dr. Jeremy Simon Stanton
I work as an orthopaedic upper limb surgeon with an elective practice involving the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. I perform many arthroscopic shoulder procedures (often in the younger population after sporting injuries) including shoulder stabilisations, SLAP and rotator cuff repairs, sub-acromial decompressions and capsular releases for frozen shoulders and also shoulder arthroplasty procedures for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
I also carry out both arthroscopic and open operations on the elbow, including elbow joint replacements for both arthritis and trauma in the elderly.
I treat many patients with radio-carpal and inter-carpal arthritis in the wrist and also the not uncommon problem of patients with an adverse outcome after distal radial fracture.
I have an orthopaedic hand practice, treating Dupuytren's both open and percutaneously, basal thumb arthritis both by trapezial excision and joint replacement, interphalangeal and metacarpo-phalangeal arthritis with joint replacements, and the smaller conditions such as carpal tunnel decompression, trigger finger and deQuervain's release.
I work closely with very experienced anaesthetists such that the majority of my upper limb surgical procedures can be carried out under regional anaesthetic, avoiding the side-effects of a general anaesthetic, a quicker post-operative recovery and hence faster discharge. The majority of my cases can go home the same day following surgery, having been admitted the morning of surgery avoiding the need to spend any nights in hospital.
I also have a general trauma practice and take part in a 1 in 8 on call rota with a weekly trauma list. I regularly carry out fixation of complex proximal and distal humeral fractures using the most up to date methods, and treat many complex distal radial fractures both in the acute and chronic (malunited) stage.
Although an upper limb surgeon, I am also experienced in the treatment of routine lower limb trauma, including hip fractures, femoral and tibial shaft fractures (by plate fixation, intramedullary nailing and external fixation), and ankle fractures.
