Mr Alistair Jepson has been a Consultant Upper Limb surgeon in Northampton since 2005, with a practice specialising in shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist surgery. He graduated in 1994 from the University of Birmingham, and thereafter trained in and around London, with his orthopaedic specialist training within the North West Thames region.
He was awarded specialist accreditation in 2004, and then pursued his interest in upper limb surgery with two fellowships; the first an upper limb fellowship at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia - one of the largest and busiest upper limb units in the country - and the second a hand fellowship back in the UK, at the Pulvertaft Hand Unit in Derby.
His work is divided between NHS commitments at Northampton General Hospital, and his main private practice location at the BMI Three Shires Hospital. His specialist interest is in shoulder arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) for rotator cuff tendon repairs and stabilisations for instability, but as an upper limb specialist, he does offer a full range of treatments for conditions from collar bone to fingertip, including carpal tunnel and ulna nerve releases. Sports injuries are a large part of his work too, and Alistair regularly treats local professional sportsmen and women from the fields of rugby, football and cricket.
