About me

Mr Falworth's practice within the private and NHS sectors, is related solely to the management of conditions affecting the shoulder and elbow. This encompasses all aspects of surgery and is based on the multidisciplinary approach to the surgical and non-surgical treatments of the shoulder and elbow. Patients’ needs, and the use of physiotherapy and interventional radiology techniques, are always considered before surgical solutions are discussed and utilised. All treatments are evidence based and reflect the exacting standards that Mr Falworth adheres to and reflect the standards of his NHS base, the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore).

Mr Falworth qualified in Medicine from King’s College Hospital, London in 1996. His higher specialist orthopaedic training was undertaken on the St Mary’s Hospital (North West Thames) rotation where he gained extensive experience in shoulder and elbow surgery. He then undertook more specialist training at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore under the guidance of Ian Bayley, before he undertook just under two years of further specialist fellowship training in shoulder and elbow surgery;

- Shoulder & Elbow Surgery Fellow; Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore
- AO Trauma / Shoulder Surgery Fellow; Salzberg, Austria; Dr Resch
- Sports Surgery and Arthroplasty Fellow; Sportsmed.SA, Adelaide, Australia
- British Elbow and Shoulder Society Travelling Fellow; Dr Burkhart (San Antonio) and Dr Romeo (Chicago)

Mr Falworth was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) in 2006. At the RNOH Mr Falworth provides a comprehensive service covering all aspects of shoulder and elbow surgery, including providing a significant revision service to other orthopaedic surgeons throughout the UK. He is widely published in the orthopaedic research literature as well as being the author of several text book chapters related to shoulder and elbow surgery. He has pioneered techniques in computer aided surgery and is a regular invited speaker at national and international scientific meetings and instructional courses.

Mr Falworth was the Clinical Lead to the Shoulder and Elbow Unit at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital from 2012 to 2017. He was elected as Treasurer to the British Elbow and Shoulder Society (BESS) in 2017 and is also an elected member of BESS Council. He is a co-author of three BESS Guidelines aimed at optimising care in the UK. These relate to; the Management of Shoulder & Elbow Prosthetic Joint Infection, the Provision of Primary and Revision Elbow Replacement in the UK and the Management of Shoulder Instability.

In 2018 he was awarded a BESS Copeland Fellowship which culminated in a three week lecture tour of India aimed at projecting the work of BESS internationally.
