Mr Noorani’s strongly believes that his primary role is to offer an accurate assessment and a precise diagnosis. Upper limb symptoms are common and many patients and therapists often need reassurance and explanations for the problems they are experiencing. Mr Noorani believes strongly in a multidisciplinary approach to treatment of these problems. Very few people actually require surgery. Patients need to know that they are seeing someone who they trust and who understands and specialises in their problem.
