Overview

There is considerable overlap between the basic science and clinical areas of research. Regarding basic science the areas include mesothelial cell function in a number of scenarios (tumours, tendon degeneration etc) and EMG studies in common upper limb pathologies such as tennis elbow and rotator cuff pathologies. 

Professor Simon Frostick from the Orthopaedic Biology programme at University of Liverpool has developed a number of new operations for reconstruction of major upper limb pathologies and has promoted other new techniques into the UK, for example, shoulder arthroscopy.

Our research interests

Clinical studies conducted with the intent to advance therapies to the clinic or develop in upper limb surgery, peripheral nerve surgery and surgery for musculoskeletal He has developed a number of new operations including reconstruction of major upper limb pathologies and promotion of other new techniques into the UK.

Programme Structure

Our research themes include:

  • Mesothelial cell function in tumours and tendon degeneration
  • Studies of common upper limb pathologies
