Shoulder Injuries

• Comprehensive care for every shoulder and elbow condition
• A specialised joint needs a specialised surgeon

Dr Bernard Lee is a trained shoulder and elbow surgeon who ran the Shoulder and Elbow Service in a busy public hospital.

Be it keyhole surgery, fracture treatment or joint replacements, Dr Lee uses only the best and most up to date techniques and equipment to ensure that every patient gets the best possible outcome.

Shoulder joint replacements are commonly done for severe arthritis, complex fractures and irreparable rotator cuff tears with limited shoulder function. Dr Bernard Lee employs surgical techniques to help appropriate patients preserve the original shoulder and to avoid a shoulder replacement where possible.


Dr Bernard Lee uses modern techniques and customised approach to managing every individual’s rotator cuff problem to get the best outcome from every shoulder problem.
