About me

Mr Henry Colaço is a Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon who specialises in conditions of the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. He is the Clinical Lead for Upper Limb Surgery at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Mr Colaço completed his surgical training London and two specialist training fellowship posts in Shoulder and Elbow and Complex Upper Limb Surgery at University College Hospital, and St George’s Hospital, in addition to the prestigious British & Elbow Shoulder Society (BESS) Travelling Fellowship in France. He was then appointed as a Locum Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, and an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at University College London.

In 2017, he was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester. He works within a group of six upper limb surgeons at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. His special interests include upper limb trauma and complex reconstructive and sports shoulder, elbow, and wrist surgery. He has an interest in developing novel techniques of reconstructive arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery, including superior capsular reconstruction for patients with irreparable rotator cuff tears.

His research interests include the use of simulation to enhance surgical skills training and improve patient safety, and was given the ‘Innovation in Simulation’ Award from the British Orthopaedic Society in 2015. He is a founding member of the BESS Simulation Working Group, and served a 2-year term as a member of the BESS Education Committee.

Mr Colaço firmly believes in a patient-centred approach to treatment in order to tailor operative and non-operative techniques to the individual. When surgery is required, he uses minimally invasive techniques where possible to achieve optimal results and faster rehabilitation.
