Emmet has a specialist interest in surgery to the shoulder and elbow. The majority of his shoulder surgery is performed arthroscopically (keyhole) which allows a quicker rehabilitation. This includes repairs to the tendons of the shoulder (Rotator Cuff), arthroscopic release for frozen shoulder and arthroscopic stabilisation procedures. Emmet also performs high volumes of shoulder replacements. He provides a full range of elbow surgery including the surgical management of arthritis of the elbow, tennis/golfers elbow and surgery on the ulnar nerve. His practice also includes a specialist upper limb trauma service. This includes the management of both fractures and ligaments around the shoulder, elbow and forearm. Emmet performs approximately 400 arthroscopic shoulder surgeries each year across both NHS and Private practice. He was appointed as a consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedics with a specialist interest in the shoulder and elbow at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in August 2015. Emmet successfully completed higher surgical training which included two years at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. He then completed a comprehensive shoulder and elbow fellowship at the world renowned Wrightington Hospital. Emmet has further supplemented his training with several visitations to the European Centre of Excellence in Germany, Switzerland and Spain.
