Mr Mark G Pritchard attended King's College Hospital, London Medical School qualifying in 1992. Following basic surgical training he has undertaken a wide and varied training in Trauma and Orthopaedics.
Mr Pritchard developed a specialist interest in shoulder and elbow problems in the later part of his orthopaedic training and was lucky enough to study with world renowned shoulder surgeon Dr Joe De Beer at the Cape Shoulder Institute Cape Town, South Africa. Mr Pritchard continues an interest in shoulder and elbow surgery and now limits his practice to these areas. His specific interests are problematic shoulder and elbow arthroplasties (replacements), together with shoulder and elbow arthroscopy including sporting injuries. Following his time spent with Dr Jo De Beer he has had an increasing interest in arthroscopic (keyhole) rotator cuff and shoulder instability surgery with a particular interest in recurrence and bone block procedures for the treatment of this.
Mr Pritchard is a member of the faculty of several courses including Watanabe Arthroscopy Shoulder which is a UK national club dedicated to the expansion of arthroscopic surgery. He also teaches on the Sports and Exercise Medicine MSc course at UWIC, Cardiff and is a faculty member on the Osteosythesis Trauma Care Foundation. Mr Pritchard is also a reviewer for the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow surgery and takes a keen interest in audit and research.
