Mr Lyons is an Orthopaedic Surgeon. Orthopaedic Surgery is a speciality that treats a vast array of bone and joint disorders throughout the body. It is such an enormous field that many surgeons develop an expertise in the treatment of specific joints such as the hip, knee, hand or spine. Mr Lyons has for many years focused his practice upon the management of orthopaedic conditions affecting the shoulder. These conditions range from degenerative conditions through to sporting injuries, major trauma and fractures. Some of the more common conditions that Mr Lyons is able to offer assessment and treatment of are described below.

  • Shoulder Impingement Shoulder Impingement

    Shoulder impingement refers to catching of the rotator cuff tendons and or sub-acromial bursa as these structures pass under the acromion process of the scapula (shoulder blade). These structures normally have quite a small space to pass through. The acromion irritates the tendons and bursa. This results in inflammation and swelling of these structures.
