About

  • Biography icon plus

    Simon Lambert has recently been appointed Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the University College Hospital in central London to undertake complex and revision reconstruction of difficult conditions of the shoulder and elbow. His particular interests are in the reconstruction of post-traumatic deformity, neuromuscular disorders of the shoulder and elbow, soft tissue reconstruction for rotator cuff disease and instability of the shoulder and elbow, and complex and revision joint replacement and rehabilitation in the shoulder and elbow. He will help develop the shoulder and elbow service at UCLH into the leading tertiary referral centre in London and the South East for the treatment of infection and revision joint replacement in the shoulder and elbow.

    Simon holds several visiting honorary consultant positions in hospitals around the UK, helping colleagues with difficult surgical cases. He is Corresponding Member of the German Trauma and Orthopaedic Society, International member of the Innsbruck Shoulder Society, and Gold member of AOTrauma.

    Simon was trained at the Charing Cross Hospital Medical School, University of London, qualifying in 1984. He subsequently undertook higher surgical training in trauma and orthopaedics in London and Birmingham in the UK, and Switzerland.

    During his training Simon was invited to two AO Fellowships in Switzerland working under Professors Gerber and Hertel, both shoulder surgeons of international reputation. He was appointed as Consultant to the University Hospital of Southampton in 1996, developed the busy orthopaedic trauma service at that hospital, and was awarded the prestigious North American Travelling Fellowship of the European Society for Surgery of the Shoulder and Elbow (ESSSE) in 1998. He was appointed to the staff of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in 2001, working with Mr Ian Bayley, and developed the service into a nationally-regarded centre for specialist shoulder rehabilitation.

    Simon has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers, editorials and reviews, and 19 book chapters, including a revision of the chapters on the shoulder girdle and shoulder joint in Gray’s Anatomy, on a wide range of topics related to the shoulder and elbow. He is completing an MD thesis in UCL on fixed-fulcrum total shoulder arthroplasty. His major research interests are on the anatomy of shoulder pain, the anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder girdle, joint replacement of the shoulder and elbow, including novel prosthetic designs for the elbow in conjunction with colleagues at the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Medicine at UCL, and the functional outcome of shoulder fractures. He reviews papers for several major orthopaedic journals including the JBJSAm, BJJ, JSES, and Shoulder and Elbow, being on the editorial board of the last. He has been invited to participate on a new International editorial board of a major German orthopaedic and traumatology surgical techniques journal.
