Mr Mark Falworth is one of London's leading orthopaedic surgeons and a pioneer in computer-aided surgical techniques. Practicing across London, Stanmore and Watford, Mr Falworth specialises in the management of all conditions affecting the shoulder and elbow, including rotator cuff injury, shoulder impingement, frozen shoulder, shoulder dislocation and shoulder and elbow arthritis.
In a career spanning over 20 years, Mr Falworth has received extensive training in surgical best practice, while consistently keeping apace with the latest surgical techniques. Originally qualifying from King's College, London in 1996, he underwent specialist training at St Mary's Hospital (North West Thames) and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH), Stanmore. Nearly two further years of specialist shoulder and elbow surgery fellowship training took him to leading orthopaedic centres in the UK, Austria and Australia, and in 2009 Mr Falworth was awarded a further fellowship to learn new techniques in shoulder surgery in San Antonio and Chicago, USA.
As a Consultant Orthopaedic Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Mr Falworth handles complex cases of shoulder and elbow surgery and referrals for revision surgery from orthopaedic surgeons from all over the UK. He is actively involved in clinical research projects and is widely published in peer-review publications. Mr Falworth also plays an active part in education and is regularly an invited speaker at national and international courses and scientific meetings. He has been a co-author of three Best Practice Guidelines written on behalf of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society (BESS) and in 2018 was awarded a prestigious BESS Copeland Fellowship, which is aimed at projecting British shoulder and elbow surgery internationally. Mr Falworth was Clinical Lead to the Shoulder and Elbow Unit at the RNOH between 2012 - 2017 and was elected to the Council of the British Elbow and Shoulder Society (BESS) in 2017 where he also holds the post of Treasurer.
Across all of his practices, Mr Falworth ensures that all non-surgical options, such as physiotherapy and interventional radiology, are considered and discussed prior to considering surgery and the patients choice is always integral to treatment planning.
