Full Biography

Mr Shyamalan is a consultant hand surgeon and director of the Midland Hand Clinic based in Birmingham, Solihull Worcestershire & Warwickshire. He is an expert in hand, wrist, forearm and elbow trauma, arthritis in those joints, carpal tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren's disease, tendonitis, ganglion and wrist keyhole surgery. He also sub-specialises in complex upper-limb procedures of the elbow, treating conditions such as dislocations, keyhole elbow surgery, tennis elbow and golfer's elbow. He is also one of very few orthopaedic hand surgeons that performs high volumes of arthroscopic scaphoid surgery in the UK.

He is currently working and training others at The University Hospitals Birmingham and is regarded as an expert opinion in hand, wrist, and elbow problems in the West Midlands, serving a population of over one million.

He undertook his hand and plastic surgery fellowship training at three world class units. The first being at the Ganga Hospital, India, with Raja Sabapathy, then at the Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, with Professor Tonkin and finally at The Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, with Kate Owers and Rupert Eckersley.

Mr Shyamalan offers an individualised and multi-disciplinary service for the management of complex hand, wrist, and elbow conditions. He continuously works with hand therapists to offer both surgical and non-surgical treatments for his patients which includes steroid injections for arthritis and platelet rich plasma injections for tendonitis.
