Welcome to The Cape Shoulder and Elbow Unit
The Cape Shoulder and Elbow Unit is an association of shoulder and elbow surgeons in Cape Town, who come from a common training background and work with a similar approach and ethos. They consult and frequently operate together for complex cases.
The advantage of this group is that the surgical specialists do not practice in isolation. They share ideas and concepts and are all involved in research and teaching. As a result they are up-to-date with the latest advances in the surgical management of shoulder and elbow pathology.
The purpose of this website is to provide an information resource to describe and address common shoulder and elbow conditions.
The content requires significant time to prepare so please bear with us where sections are still incomplete. This website is not a definitive medical resource, but is meant to provide information to patients regarding their conditions.
The focus in this website is to present information simply but thoroughly. Photos have been provided to enhance your understanding.
