Upper limb conditions can often have a dramatic impact on one’s well-being and Mr Jagernauth takes time to establish the root of the problem. He uses shared decision making to empower patients with the information they need to make informed choices for their care. Many upper limb conditions can be successfully treated without surgery and Mr Jagernauth will discuss these options first before considering surgery.
