Hannan Mullett Shoulder Specialist Santry

Hannan Mullett

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Hannan Mullett will continue to see patients in his room offering conservative treatment including injections during the consultation.

Mr Mullett specialises in all types of shoulder surgery including arthroscopic reconstructive (keyhole) surgery. He has a particular interest in managing sports injuries such as shoulder instability (dislocations) and rotator cuff injuries. He routinely treats professional athletes and is active in research in optimising return to play. He performs a large volume of rotator cuff repair and shoulder replacement operations. He regularly lectures nationally and internationally and instructs on surgical training courses. He runs a shoulder fellowship training program and has trained fellows who now work all around the world.
