She sees and treats all aspects of musculo-skeletal conditions affecting the upper limb (hands, wrist, elbow and shoulder), whether inflammatory, wear-and-tear arthritis or sports injury related.

She offers one-to-one consultations and elective treatments and surgeries for all aspects of upper limb conditions and injuries.
