I embarked on my surgical training having graduated from University College London in 1986. During my placement at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore I completed a MS (Master of Surgery) degree with Professor George Bentley.
My orthopaedic training was completed in Adelaide, Australia where I undertook a year- long fellowship in upper limb surgery.
I am married to Caroline who is a pharmacist at The Norfolk and Norwich Hospital and have two daughters. We all love being outside and have a small boat on which we like to explore The Norfolk Broads.
Mr Peter Hallam
I have been a Consultant at The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital since 2003 specialising in shoulder disorders and upper limb trauma.
My practice includes treatment for fractures, sports injuries, strains/tears of ligaments and tendons, problems around the shoulder including rotator cuff tears and joint replacement for arthritis. Much of my shoulder surgery is performed through an arthroscope (key-hole surgery) which avoids large incisions and potentially speeds up post-operative recovery.
Between NHS and Private Practice I perform around 450 shoulder operations per year. All pre and post-operative data concerning my shoulder replacements is sent to the National Joint Registry.
Post-operative rehabilitation is vital to the success of shoulder surgery and therefore I work closely with the nursing staff and physiotherapists.
