Dr Al-Shaikh welcomes you.

My background and current practice

Your health and quality of orthopaedic care are my top priorities.


Although having a surgeon who is technically excellent is very important, I strongly believe the most successful patient care results from a two-way treatment process.

From the very first visit, I make a conscious effort to establish a warm, friendly rapport with each of my patients to encourage open and direct communication.

I listen to your needs, include them in my diagnosis and treatment decisions, and welcome your input and feedback each step of the way.

Any injury causes you concern and anxiety - you may not know what is wrong and what needs to be done to correct your injury. My main approach to helping heal your injury is to keep you well informed - through dialogue between us and through external sources of information that are available. It is my job to help you understand why I take, or do not take, certain actions.

When you come to see me as your orthopaedic surgeon, surgery is not your only option. Sometimes through rehabilitation and available prescriptions, your injury may be healed. If you do require surgery, I'll keep you informed of why surgery is required, what will be done in the surgery, and what to expect as an eventual outcome after surgery.
