Personal profile

Mr Seagger studied at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, London, where he qualified as a doctor in 1998. He undertook his orthopaedic training in the Severn Deanery (Bristol area) before embarking on sub-specialty training in shoulder surgery. He was awarded fellowships in Exeter and London under the supervision of Mr Tim Bunker and Mr Andrew Wallace, two leading and respected arthroscopic shoulder surgeons.

He subsequently undertook a further fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at The Avon Orthopaedic Centre, Bristol under Mr Mark Crowther and Mr Neil Blewitt. During his fellowships, he has been actively involved both in research and the treatment of numerous world-class sportsmen. 

Mr Seagger’s primary concern is with obtaining optimal results for his patients. The management goals can range from the reduction of pain and dysfunction to return to high level sporting activities. He actively audits his practice, using internationally validated scoring systems. 

Mr Seagger has also published in a number of journals including:
