Shoulder, Elbow,
Hand & WRIST surgeon

Abhi Gulihar is a leading orthopaedic surgeon based in London and Kent specialising in managing and treating upper limb conditions.

Abhi Gulihar an Orthopaedic Surgeon

I’m Abhi, a private orthopaedic surgeon based in London and Kent. My area of expertise is treating upper limb conditions, specifically those related to the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand. My approach is centered on the patient, and I work tirelessly to determine the root cause of their symptoms and develop personalised treatment plans that cater to their unique needs.

Most upper limb conditions can be managed effectively with non-surgical treatment, which is my preferred approach. However, if surgery is required, I specialise in minimally invasive arthroscopic (key-hole) surgery techniques that offer faster recovery times and less postoperative discomfort for my patients.



Shoulder issues can be incredibly debilitating, affecting our daily activities and overall quality of life. From pain to arthritis, fractures to injuries, there are many issues that can arise in the shoulder area.


The elbow is a complex joint that can be affected by a range of injuries and conditions such as arthritis, fractures, and tennis elbow significantly impact our ability to perform daily tasks and playing sports.

Hand & Wrist

Wrist and hand pain can make the simplest of tasks difficult. Pain can be caused by sudden injuries such as sprains or fractures, but it can also stem from issues like arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Cricket Injuries

Cricketers are prone to upper limb injuries due to repetitive and high-intensity bowling, batting, and throwing movements. Injuries include rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Golf Injuries

Golf may not be a high risk sport but like most athletes golfers are prone to overuse injuries. Repeatedly swinging a club can lead to pain in the wrist and the conditions aptly named golfers elbow.

PRP Injections

PRP injections can relieve osteoarthritis and injury symptoms, often avoiding or delaying the need for surgery. It can be useful in treating conditions like shoulder arthritis and tennis elbow.
