Professional Profile

Mr David Rose is a UK-trained orthopaedic surgeon specialising in the treatment of shoulder and elbow problems. He qualified from the Royal Free and University College London Medical School in 2000 and went on to complete orthopaedic specialist training on the South West Thames training rotation.

Mr Rose has undertaken fellowships at the Johns Hopkins Medical Centre, USA, the Perth Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre, Australia, and at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, during which time he was fortunate enough to train under a number of world-renowned surgeons. He has published extensively in peer-reviewed orthopaedic journals, presented work at international conferences and continues to be actively involved in research.

He was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust in 2014 and has a particular interest in arthroscopic (keyhole) shoulder surgery. His approach to shoulder problems will involve discussion of both non-surgical and surgical options with each patient once a diagnosis has been made. Since he operates almost exclusively on shoulders this means that he uses only the most modern surgical techniques and regularly attends specialist shoulder meetings to make sure that his skills are kept up to date.
