Personal Profile

Mr Chambler is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Bath Clinic. He qualified from St Mary’s Hospital medical School, part of Imperial College, in London. He has been a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in the UK for the past 15 years.

Embarking on his surgical career his interest grew with Orthopaedics, in particular shoulder and elbow surgery. Under the supervision of Professor Roger Emery, Mr Chambler was awarded his Masters of Surgery degree specialising in shoulder and elbow surgery by the University of London in 2000. He gained his Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship with Professor Carr in Oxford and has since been awarded travelling fellowships to UK & Europe, as well as to the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in the USA, by the British Elbow & Shoulder Society.

Mr Chambler further developed the shoulder & elbow service at Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, not only concentrating on new advanced arthroscopic techniques and joint replacement but also organising quality control with prospective audit of surgical outcome to ensure the highest level of patient care. He became Clinical Director of Orthopaedics at YDH in 2011. 

As a specialist in shoulder and elbow surgery, a large part of his practice is made up of shoulder replacements and tendon problems. Further areas of interest for Mr Chambler also include the management of sports injuries, tendinopathies, shoulder, and elbow arthroplasty.

When meeting with a patient, whether they are an NHS referral or by way private self-pay or insurance, Mr Chambler gathers a detailed history and examination of the affected area. Once a diagnosis is made, he will discuss which management option best suits the patient and their injury; and whether it will require an operative or non-operative procedure. Treatments can include steroid injections, platelet rich plasma injections to keyhole surgery. At the Bath Clinic Mr Chambler is fortunate to offer bio-inductive implants to full shoulder replacements. Conveniently, a lot of Mr Chambler’s procedures can be done via a day case admittance. This allows the patient to recover in a comfortable home environment.  

Mr Chambler's main objective is to make all his patients feel better, increase the functionality of their joints and ensure their quality of life is at its fullest.
