About

  • Biography icon plus

    Mr Makki’s practice covers a full range of arthroscopic (keyhole) and open shoulder and elbow surgery including subacromial decompression shoulder stabilisation for instability and dislocation, rotator cuff tendon repair, arthroscopic biceps tenodesis, shoulder replacement and upper limb trauma.

    He also undertakes a broad range of elbow, wrist and hand procedures.
    Mr Makki has a special expertise in one of the latest arthroscopic procedures of the shoulder called “the superior capsular reconstruction” whereby a piece of human tissue called Dermal allograft is used to replace the irreparable rotator cuff tendon. He adopted his own innovative technique in this procedure and presented his work at the international level.

    He qualified from the Lebanese university medical school in 2001 and holds MD degree with a gold medal in the graduation thesis. He completed his basic surgical training in the East of England Deanery and underwent later a specialist training on the Mersey Deanery rotation. He developed an interest in upper limb surgery and undertook higher training at the internationally renowned Wrightington Upper Limb Unit. He subsequently pursued a one-year advanced training fellowship in shoulder surgery in Manchester.

    In addition to his surgical qualifications, Mr Makki has a BSc in biology and a Diploma in Sports and Exercise Medicine. He has a keen interest in research and has published several articles (27 studies so far) in scientific journals. More recently, he has published a chapter on shoulder arthroplasty in a major shoulder textbook. He presented research at national and international scientific meetings. He is a faculty member on the Wrightington basic science course for higher surgical trainees.
    He is currently the Lead of “Enhanced Recovery Program” at St Albans City Hospital (West Hertfordshire NHS Trust) which helps a speedy recovery from upper limb surgery.
