Mr. Matt Ravenscroft MBBS BSc FRCS (Trauma & Orth)

Honorary Senior Lecturer University of Salford, Manchester

Consultant Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon


I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.  My areas of expertise are arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and elbow, upper limb joint replacement surgery and sports injuries to the upper limb.

I qualified from St. George's Hospital Medical School in 1995 gaining most of my surgical training in the South West Thames region before moving to Manchester to take up my registrar post in Orthopaedics and Trauma.

My expertise in shoulder surgery  was attained from holding UK upper limb fellowship posts at the Wrightington Upper Limb Unit and the internationally renowned Reading Shoulder Unit under the supervision of Mr Steve Copeland and Mr Ofer Levy. I was then   awarded the British Elbow and Shoulder Society North American Fellowship.  In North America I spent time in the Mayo clinic (Rochester, Minnesota) the University of Washington in Seattle and Boston, mainly concentrating on upper limb sports injuries.

I am actively involved in teaching and research. I am a faculty member on both national and international shoulder athroscopy and joint replacement courses. I also run a shoulder arthroscopy course for orthopaedic surgeons in training and offer a shoulder fellowship.
