"Having played professional sport from 1989-2008 I’ve amassed plenty of aches and pains after numerous operations. I’ve been around the world and seen some of the best Doctors and surgeons out there, and Ram has been right up there with his care and skill. Never in a rush, he’s kind, compassionate and very professional. Not only helped me with knee and shoulder pain, he’s also treated my wife for elbow pain. My son is now going to see him as he’s seen a difference in how his parents are moving. Thanks for all your help, Darren Gough and Anna Gough"

Does it work?

‘Hydro dilatation’ or ‘Hydro distension’, is a special procedure to treat frozen shoulder conditions.

The steroid is a strong anti-inflammatory medication that helps to reduce shoulder pain. The success rate is over 90% when combined with shoulder exercises following this procedure. If you are struggling with the ‘frozen shoulder’, this is the procedure you do not want to miss. Our patient’s comments about this procedure:
