About us

Steve Gwilym is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in the management of painful conditions of the shoulder and elbow.

Mr Gwilym is part of the Shoulder & Elbow team at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford and is the clinical lead at the Oxford Trauma Unit at the John Radcliffe Hospital. In these roles, he personally manages over 1000 patients a year.

As a consequence, Mr Gwilym has vast experience in treating both acute injuries and problems resulting from previous injury. He has expertise in both non-operative and surgical management of a wide range of injuries of the limbs. Having consulted on Harley Street for a number of years, he now exclusively sees patients in his Oxfordshire clinics, offering the same level of care to local, national and international patients.

He underwent 12 years of orthopaedic training in London and Oxford before completing specialist fellowships in both trauma and shoulder & elbow surgery in Sydney, Australia. He has subsequently travelled to numerous centres of excellence throughout Europe to both teach, and learn from other expert surgeons.
