About us

Len Funk established in 2002. Since then it has become the most popular Shoulder & Elbow information website on the internet, receiving over 150,000 hits per day!.

ShoulderDoc  started off as a simple site to provide our 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 daily.

All articles added to the website including medical content are written by medical professionals and peer-reviewed by Prof. Lennard 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 and elbow information.
  2. To educate and partner our patients in making decisions at every stage.
  3. To ensure that our clinical practice is of  the highest integrity and evidence based.
  4. To promote and provide teaching, research and innovation.

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