Mr Jagwant Singh

MBBS, MRCS, FRCS (Tr & Orth)

Consultant Orthopaedic, Trauma & Specialist Upper limb Surgeon

Mr Jagwant Singh is a fellowship-trained trauma and upper limb orthopaedic surgeon dedicated to providing every patient with the highest quality of care using the latest techniques. He specialises in upper limb trauma as well as shoulder and elbow surgery, including joint preservation, arthroscopic and joint replacement surgery. A respected author, researcher and teacher, he is passionate about innovation and regularly travels to centres of excellence worldwide to investigate the latest cutting-edge techniques in shoulder and elbow surgery. He is based at the Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust where he takes a leading role in research and teaching and mentoring junior trainees.

Mr Jagwant Singh

Mr Singh undertook his specialist trauma and orthopaedic training on the renowned Royal London rotation, gaining invaluable experience in shoulder and elbow surgery at the Shoulder and Peripheral Nerve Injuries Unit at Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore and the Shoulder Unit at the Barts Health NHS Trust.

He won the Freeman Prize 2013-14 and was awarded RLHOTS travelling fellowship in 2017 to the Steadman Clinic & US Olympic Institute, Vail Colorado and Harvard Shoulder Unit (Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston). After becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 2017, he gained a prestigious fellowship at the renowned Wrightington Upper limb unit, where he went on to win the John Charnley gold medal in 2018. At this globally-recognised centre of excellence, he furthered his knowledge in the fields of shoulder and elbow surgery, complex joint replacements and nerve and hand surgery. He also honed his skills in ‘wide awake’ shoulder surgery and managing shoulder and elbow trauma at Nottingham Shoulder and Elbow Unit. The British Shoulder and Elbow Society fellowship he gained in 2018, enabled him to add to his expertise at leading North American centres, such as the Mayo Clinic, Rochester and Rothman’s Institute, Philadelphia.

He continues to travel widely to further his knowledge and gain cutting-edge experience in shoulder and elbow surgery from international centres of excellence and has been widely published in peer-reviewed journals and regularly presents his work internationally and nationally.

He has an ongoing interest in 3D planning and the use of patient specific instrumentation for patients undergoing primary and revision shoulder replacements and has designed and led on numerous trials including portfolio studies.
