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 knowledge of the biomechanical reasons for the problem. Although his practice philosophy is that the majority of conditions are best treated without surgery, if an operation is needed Mr Ibrahim is highly skilled in a full range of surgical 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 time at Harvard Medical School. His higher training was on Imperial College London rotation. During this time, he was awarded first prize for a master’s degree in Surgical Education which included a published thesis on how an Orthopaedic Surgeon should prepare for complex surgery. He received further training in nerve surgery at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and undertook a specialist fellowship in upper limb surgery at the Royal Derby ‘Superhospital’, where he helped create the UK’s first enhanced recovery programme for shoulder replacement surgery. He was a travelling fellow of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society, learning from renowned surgeons in Lyon and Stockholm.
As a former University of London tennis captain and an active player for The Queen’s Club he has a unique insight into the needs of patients who play racket and other overhead sports.
