Mr Yewlett is an experienced Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in both surgical and regenerative treatments of shoulder, elbow and hand conditions and sporting injuries of the same. He provides a “one” stop shoulder diagnostic service and is also a high volume shoulder arthroplasty surgeon.

He studied medicine at Imperial College London and graduated with a first class honours degree in 2004. In addition to his surgical qualifications he obtained a higher degree in Trauma Surgery from Swansea University in 2013 for which he won the outstanding performance award.

He was awarded the inaugural national BESS (British Elbow and Shoulder Society) Leadership fellowship award in 2015. He uses published evidence to inform his decision making process and will only suggest a surgical solution for a problem when there is no better non-surgical alternative.

He was awarded the national BESS Pump Priming Grant award in 2018 for the consent plus project for shoulder and elbow arthroplasty.

In June 2019 he became the first and only named shoulder surgeon approved by the major insurance group (Alliance) to perform wide awake office based diagnostic arthroscopies on their corporate patients in recognition of his international expertise with the “Mi-eye” device.

He has been awarded the national certificate of excellence from the iwantgreatcare website for two years in succession in recognition of his outstanding and consistently excellent feedback from patients.
