Mr Gidwani treats the full range of adult hand and wrist problems. He has particular interests in the management of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, nerve compressions such as carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome, Dupuytren’s disease, wrist pain, ligament injuries, and fractures of the hand and wrist. He regularly treats sports professionals. He treats many conditions without surgery, and works closely with his hand therapy colleagues to achieve the best outcome for his patients.

Having graduated from Kings College London in 1995, he completed his orthopaedic training in Bristol and London, followed by three hand surgery fellowships at leading hand units in Oxford, Derby and Brisbane. He has also been awarded the British Diploma of Hand Surgery.
