About us

Lennard Funk established ShoulderDoc.co.uk in 2002. Since then it has become one of the most popular Shoulder information website on the internet.

ShoulderDoc  started off as a simple site to provide my own patients with information and guidance that was not easily available elsewhere. We have tried to make the site as user-friendly as possible and content is added almost weekly.

All articles added to the website including medical content are written by medical professionals and peer-reviewed by Len Funk. Wherever possible the reference sources are mentioned and hyper-linked. Sources for reference material include medical textbooks, clinical and scientific journals and our own clinical audits.

Our mission is:

  1. To be the one of the best resources of shoulder information.
  2. To educate and partner our patients in making decisions at every stage.
  3. To ensure that our information is of  the highest integrity and evidence based.
  4. To promote and provide education for medical professionals.

In order to do this we welcome any feedback and advice for further improvements.
