Jochen Fischer is a fully trained Orthopaedic, Trauma and Upper Limb Surgeon practicing at the Spire Regency and District General Hospitals in Macclesfield. He is specialising in the treatment of conditions affecting the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand including degenerative conditions, sports injuries and fractures. He favours minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery techniques whenever possible and is one of the few surgeons in the northwest of England to offer endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery. Mr. Fischer regularly carries out shoulder replacement surgery for patients with end-stage arthritis. He’s developed a particular interest in regenerative techniques like Orthobiologics including PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and stem cell treatment.
After graduating from Medical School at the University of Heidelberg his training took him from Germany to the north-west of England where he completed his specialty training in Merseyside. He undertook fellowship training in some of the most prestigious departments for hand and upper limb surgery like Wrightington, the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby and the Indiana Hand Centre in Indianapolis. He also spent time in Soweto for a trauma fellowship.
He offers a personalised service with a treatment plan that is tailor-made to the patient's individual needs and expectations. During an initial consultation patients undergo a detailed assessment of their problem. Investigations like x-rays, scans or nerve conduction studies are often required in the diagnostic process. While most problems can be treated without surgery, operations are sometimes required in more treatment-resistant or complex conditions. Mr. Fischer works in close cooperation with a dedicated upper limb physiotherapist, allowing him to discuss all rehab needs straight away.
