About me

Mr Carlos Cobiella grew up in Spain where he went to Medical School. He graduated from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 1989 and started his surgical training there. He moved to London in 1992 and continued his Basic Surgical Training in several Teaching Hospitals in the London area.

In 1996 he gained access to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Specialist Training Programme in Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery. That gave him a chance to train at the Shoulder Unit under the guidance of Messrs Ian Bailey, Paul Calvert and Simon Lambert and also at the Peripheral Nerve Injury Unit with Professors Rolfe Birch and Thomas Carlstedt.

Mr Cobiella was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with an Upper Limb interest at the Whittington Hospital in 2003. He moved to University College Hospital in 2005 to develop his academic interest and has led the expansion of the Upper Limb Unit. He supervises the training of medical students, orthopaedic surgeons in training and a Fellow specialising in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery. He continues to publish within his field.

He was part of the Olympic Medical Team in London 2012 and looks after high level athletes from Rugby Premiership, Football leagues and several GB teams.

His main interest remains in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, including arthroscopic surgery for rotator cuff pathology and instability, trauma and, particularly, sports injuries.
