About Mr Nasir Shah

I am a Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon at Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, with a specialist interest in upper limb. Apart from general long bone trauma, I work exclusively with disorders of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder.

I also hold the position of an Honorary Senior Lecturer at Edge Hill University.

My trauma and orthopaedics training was in the Mersey region followed by the prestigious Liverpool Shoulder Fellowship. I also undertook an Upper Limb Fellowship at the world renowned Wrightington Hospital.

I undertake all upper limb fracture fixations from percutaneous scaphoid fixation to clavicle fixation as well as shoulder replacement for complex shoulder fracture.

I am a Research and Innovation Lead of my unit. I have presented my research both nationally and internationally and am a published author of more than 20 scientific papers.

I am member of the British Elbow & Shoulder Society, British Society of Surgery of Hand, Orthopaedic Trauma Society and a faculty member of the AOUK Trauma group and AOUK Hand & Wrist group.

I am an examiner for the undergraduates at the Liverpool University. I am also a MRCS examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

When not working I enjoy Laser sailing (RYA level 3), Scuba diving (PADI open water) and  playing squash.

WHAT WE DO ?

Mr Shah has expertise and specialization over various kinds of shoulder, elbow, wrist and  hand injuries and fractures.

1

Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery

It is a procedure that orthopaedic surgeons use to inspect, diagnose, and repair problems inside a joint. It has been performed since the 1970s, and has been useful in diagnosis, treatment, and recovery from surgery easier and faster than was once thought possible. This results in less pain for patients, and shortens the time it takes to recover and return to favorite activities.

2

Shoulder Replacement

Although shoulder joint replacement is less common than knee or hip replacement, it is just as successful in relieving joint pain. Shoulder replacement surgery was first performed in the United States in the 1950s to treat severe shoulder fractures. Over the years, shoulder joint replacement has come to be used as a successful remedy for many other painful conditions of the shoulder

3

Hand, Wrist and Elbow Surgery

The hand is made up of many bones that form its supporting framework. This frame acts as a point of attachment for the muscles that make the wrist and fingers move. A fracture occurs when enough force is applied to a bone to break it. When this happens, there is pain, swelling, and decreased use of the injured part. Perfect alignment of the bone on x-ray is not always necessary to get good function.

4

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Sometimes, the ulnar nerve gets compressed at the wrist, beneath the collarbone, or as it comes out of the spinal cord in the neck. The most common place where the nerve get compressed in behind the elbow, a condition which is known as “Carpal Tunnel” syndrome. The exact cause for this is unknown, but there are several things that can cause pressure on the nerve at the elbow.
