Written by a private patient at Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth
8th July 2021


Dislocated my shoulder in a bicycle accident in October. After my scan showed that the muscle had been torn off the bone and the ligament severely damaged and, in light of COVID likely to delay any operation, I switched from NHS to Thames Shoulder and Elbow private treatment. Whether NHS or private Mr Ibrahim would've been my surgeon. Within a few weeks of an initial consultation at Syon Clinic surgery was arranged for Jan 2nd at StJohn &St Elizabeth Hospital in Swiss Cottage. Mr Ibrahim talked me through the procedure and was very calm and reassuring.The operation took about 4 hours and was painless with the anaesthetic and I was released the same day. After a follow-up consultation with Mr Ibrahim I was prescribed physio which took about 10 weeks at West Thames Physiotherapy. Progress was slow but steady and I had 1 more consultation (after about 3 months) with Mr Ibrahim to check progress was on track. Its now 6 months post-op and I have full mobility in my shoulder, no pain and an active trip to Scotland including a day's sea kayaking caused me no problems. I've even returned to the gym to continue to build the strength back up into my arm and shoulder. Throughout Mr Ibrahim has been professional and approachable and I highly recommend his services.

Profile

Mr Ibrahim is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with specialist fellowship training in injuries and painful conditions affecting the arm, including nerve problems. He strongly believes in the importance of making an accurate diagnosis for his patients and in each instance incorporates his latest research knowledge of the biomechanical reasons for the problem. This approach allows him to advise his patients on treatment options that will maximise chances of recovery and minimise risk of recurrence. Mr Ibrahim’s practice philosophy is that the majority of conditions are best treated without surgery. However, if an operation is needed Mr Ibrahim is highly skilled in a full range of shoulder, upper arm, elbow, forearm and wrist procedures including the latest minimally invasive keyhole techniques. Some of the most common conditions that Mr Ibrahim treats include rotator cuff tears/impingement, bursitis, frozen shoulder, first-time/repeated shoulder dislocation, biceps tears, shoulder and elbow arthritis, tennis and golfer’s elbow, cubital tunnel syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome. He also treats patients with fractures and dislocations affecting the shoulder, upper arm, elbow, forearm and wrist. Mr Ibrahim graduated from University College London with distinction and a first-class honours degree in Orthopaedics, including accredited Orthopaedic training at Harvard Medical School. Following basic surgical training in the Oxford School of Surgery, when he also taught Anatomy at Oxford University, he completed higher Orthopaedic training on the prestigious Imperial College London rotation. During this time, he was awarded first prize for a master’s degree in Surgical Education. His thesis on how an Orthopaedic Surgeon should prepare for complex surgery was the first of its kind and has been published as a peer-reviewed article and a book chapter. Mr Ibrahim completed further training in nerve surgery at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and specialist fellowship training in upper limb surgery at the Royal Derby ‘Superhospital’, including the world famous Pulvertaft Hand and Wrist Unit. He was a travelling fellow of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society, learning from renowned surgeons in Lyon and Stockholm. He is also a British Orthopaedic Association Clinical Leader and was sponsored to successfully create the UK’s first Enhanced Recovery Programme for shoulder replacement surgery. Mr Ibrahim captained the University of London at tennis and still represents The Queen’s Club in competition. His continued involvement in sport has presented him with a unique understanding of the necessary treatment for patients who want to return to play in racket and other overhead sports.
