    About

    I am a shoulder surgeon in the UK. My NHS post is at the Wrightington Upper Limb Unit and my Private Practice in Manchester with The Arm Clinic is based at The Wilmslow Hospital and Manchester Institute of Health & Performance, part of HCA Healthcare UK.

    I have been a specialist in shoulder surgery for over 18 years. My practice has evolved to specialise completely on sports and soft tissue injuries of the shoulder. Providing second opinions, treating complex cases and performing revision surgery makes up a large proportion of my work. I practice closely with similar colleagues who specialise in complex trauma and shoulder replacement surgeries, as well as therapists dedicated to complex shoulder management and elite sports injuries and rehabilitation.

    My primary focus has always been to try my best for my patients, even when surgery is not the first option as most shoulder injuries can be treated with non-surgical means. As such, I also strive to educate and empower my patients, supported by my educational website – www.shoulderdoc.co.uk.

    Academically, I have written numerous books and contributed to the work of others on shoulder surgery and rehabilitation and am actively involved in research, with over 100 research publications. I regularly teach both undergraduate and postgraduate medical, sports therapy and sports medicine students. As such I am clinical lead and hold the post of Honorary Professor with the University of Salford. In addition I offer continued professional development seminars for physios, AHPs and other clinicians to ensure they are kept up to date with best practice.

    Explanation

    I have undergone shoulder surgery previously with Professor Funk at The Wilmslow Hospital. The capsular release surgery is an alternative to a Manipulation under anaesthetic, which is all that my regional hospital can offer. The surgery which Professor Funk performs enabled me to regain full range of motion and a pain free life very soon after surgery a few years ago. It is extremely reassuring to be able to access such excellent medical treatment. As a woman over 60 years old I believe that the capsular release is the better option for me. If it is required with my other shoulder, I know that this surgeon will give me the best outcome. When I was struggling in pain for months before I was allowed to travel to the UK for treatment (lock downs!), it was reassuring to know, from previous experience, that there is skilled surgeon who would be able to help. I can not recommend Professor Funk and his team highly enough.
