Mr Seagger initially saw me when I was referred from A&E for a ripped bicep. However on inspection he confirmed it wasn't and instructed me of the next steps. I have seen him numerous times since for treatment and exploratory sessions which has made a massive difference. He has also pinpointed the exact issue and reffered me to another specialist. I have to say Mr Seagger is extremely knowledgeable and a competent surgeon who cares for his patients. He is second to none.... Thanks

Mr Seagger's diagnosis and explanation of my problem was made in a very clear and understandable manner. This gave me a lot of confidence to have the steroid injection. He also made clear the limitations and long standing effects of this, explaining a parh forward for the future.

After six months of sleepless nights due to pain in shoulder saw Mr Seagger who diagnosed a inflammation of the bursa - and a steroid/cortisone was arranged - which resolve this long standing issue. Thoroughly professional and engaging would recommend this doctor to all who are suffering...!

I attended my appointment with Mr Seagger at highfield hospital today. I was a little nervous and anxious, but the was no need Mr Seagger was absolutely wonderful. He took the time to listen to how I have been struggling with my shoulder for month's. Having sleepless nights with the pain. I explained I tried to avoid pain killers has I am a my mum's fulltime carer (mum has vascular dementia). Mr seagger put my mind at rest, he diagnosed my condition so quickly confirming I had a frozen shoulder. He then talked through my options. When I got back to my car I broke down in tears , just the relief in knowing what the pain was and that it would get better with time. I just want to say a very big THANKYOU Mr Seagger.

Mr Seaggar is very accommodating and very professional. My experience with Dr Seaggar was that he wanted the best for me, he explained clearly what the options were, pros and cons. I felt I was involved and he gave me time to reflect on the way forward - the best!

Profile

My name is Robin Seagger. In April 2012 I took up a post as a Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon at Pennine Acute Trust. My NHS trauma and elective practices are undertaken at both The Royal Oldham Hospital and Rochdale Infirmary. I also treat private patients and I have admitting rights to operate and undertake regular clinics in both Spire Manchester and BMI Highfield Hospitals. These are located in central Manchester and Rochdale respectively. I have a subspecialist interest in the diagnosis and treatment of the whole spectrum of problems related to the shoulder girdle and elbow. This includes all arthroscopic procedures of the shoulder and open procedures of the shoulder and elbow. Operations I perform include advanced arthroscopic surgery for instability and rotator cuff problems, impingement, frozen shoulder and complex open procedures including joint replacement surgery for arthritis (joint resurfacing, hemiarthroplasty, total shoulder replacement and reverse polarity shoulder replacement). I regularly undertake carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve decompressions and both traditional procedures and radio-frequency ablation for tennis and golfers’ elbow. In addition to this I treat a full range of trauma and fractures around the shoulder, clavicle and elbow. I am currently endeavouring to set up a ‘One Stop Clinic’ where I will personally undertake ultrasound assessment of the patient’s shoulder as part of a routine examination. This will allow the patients to receive a firm diagnosis at their first outpatient appointment, negating the need for further imaging and hence reducing the patient’s time on waiting lists. I am regularly referred patients with complex shoulder problems from other local orthopaedic surgeons. My primary concern is with obtaining optimal results for my patients. The management goals can range from the reduction of pain and dysfunction to return to high level sporting activities and are individually tailored to meet the patients’ needs. I actively audit my practice, using internationally validated scoring systems with reliable and favourable results. I studied at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, London, where I qualified as a doctor in 1998. I undertook my orthopaedic training in the Severn Deanery (Bristol area) before embarking on sub-specialty training in shoulder surgery. I was awarded fellowships in Exeter and London under the supervision of Mr Tim Bunker and Mr Andrew Wallace, respectfully, two of the world’s leading arthroscopic shoulder surgeons. I subsequently undertook a further fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at The Avon Orthopaedic Centre, Bristol. During my fellowships I was actively involved both in research and the treatment of numerous world class sportsmen. During my registrar training I studied for and was awarded a Masters Degree (MSc) in Orthopaedic Engineering from Cardiff University. I have presented and published numerous research papers and articles both at national and international meetings as well as being published frequently in a number of international journals. I am actively involved in the training of other doctors and surgeons and frequently teach on courses including, arthroscopic shoulder surgery courses. ​
