Personal Profile

Mr Alistair Jepson has been a Consultant Upper Limb surgeon in Northampton since 2005. As a specialist in upper limb surgery, he provides professional and personalised surgical care for shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist conditions

He is extensively trained in shoulder arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) for rotator cuff tendon repairs and stabilisations for instability, as well as treatment for frozen shoulder and shoulder replacement. However, as an upper limb specialist, he offers a full range of treatments affecting the entire upper body, from collar bone to fingertip. This includes the treatment of carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve releases. He has a specialist interest too in treating base of thumb arthritis and the new technique of base of thumb joint replacement. Furthermore, he is an expert in the treatment of sports injuries. In fact, he regularly treats local professional sportsmen and women from the fields of rugby, football and cricket.

Mr Jepson graduated from the University of Birmingham in 1994. After this, he trained in and around London, with his orthopaedic specialist training taking place within the North West Thames region. He was awarded specialist accreditation in 2004 and then pursued his interest in upper limb surgery with two fellowships: the first being an upper limb fellowship at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Australia (one of the largest and busiest upper limb units in the country) and the second being a hand fellowship back in the UK at the Pulvertaft Hand Unit in Derby.

His work is dedicated to providing the best possible outcomes for patients in both the public and private health sectors. What's more, his confident diagnostic skills are matched by his surgical expertise and meticulous explanations at every step of any procedure. Private patients can access his first-class care at the Three Shires Hospital.
