About me

Mr Shyamalan (Shyam) is a dedicated Hand Surgeon working and training others at The Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, serving a population of over one million people. He works equally on all three sites (Solihull, Heartlands, and Sutton Coldfield). He is director of the The Midland Hand Clinic which covers Birmingham Central, Solihull, Sutton, Worcester & Warwick.

While playing rugby at school he broke his scaphoid bone and subsequently required surgery. This started his love of surgery! He focused on Orthopaedics and upper limb surgery for the greater part of his training.

His Hand & Plastics fellowship training was undertaken at three world class units:

Ganga Hospital India, with Raja Sabapathy, Royal North Shore Hospital, Sydney, with Professor Tonkin and The Chelsea & Westminster Hospital.

During this time he developed expertise in minimally invasive wrist and hand surgery, including key hole surgery, arthritis and Dupuytren's disease. He also sees complex nerve problems, children’s hand problems, soft tissue hand trauma, including tendon, nerve and arterial repair, and arthritis work, including joint replacement.

Mr Shyamalan's aim is to offer an individualised, expert service in the management of hand and wrist conditions, with a multi disciplinary team approach and consideration given to both surgical and non-surgical options.
