Personal profile

Mr Chambler is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at BMI Bath Clinic. He is a specialist in shoulder and elbow surgery and a large part of his practice is made up of shoulder and elbow joint replacements and tendon problems.

Mr Chambler has been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in the UK for the past 14 years. He qualified from St Mary’s Hospital medical School, part of Imperial College, in London.

Embarking on his surgical career, his interest soon became Orthopaedics and in particular shoulder and elbow surgery, being awarded his Masters of Surgery degree in this area by the University of London in 2000, under the supervision of Professor Roger Emery.

He gained his Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship with Professor Carr in Oxford and has since been awarded travelling fellowships to UK & Europe as well as to the world renowned Mayo Clinic in the USA, by the British Elbow & Shoulder Society.

He developed the shoulder & elbow service at Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, concentrating on new advanced arthroscopic techniques and joint replacement but also organising quality control with prospective audit of surgical outcome to ensure the highest level of patient care. He became Clinical Director of Orthopaedics at YDH in 2011.

Recently he has been asked to provide a service to King Hamad University Hospital in Bahrain for complex shoulder and elbow problems, visiting 3-4 times per year.

The areas of surgery include the management of sports injuries, tendinopathies and shoulder and elbow arthroplasty. He continues his interest in education and research being faculty for arthroscopic shoulder and elbow courses, peer reviewer for journals and invited lecturer both national and internationally.
