He was also the UK team doctor at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
Mr Noorani is well-known for dealing with complex sports injuries and trauma, and he is often referred to by colleagues to treat these conditions. He has a compassionate and holistic approach and prides himself on providing accurate and clear diagnoses to his patients, with clear explanations and reassurance for their problems. He uses physiotherapy where he can which leads to only 20% of his patients requiring surgery. Mr Noorani's special interests include the management of rotator cuff injuries and frozen shoulder, arthroscopy of the shoulder elbow and wrist, primary and revision shoulder and elbow arthroplasty, hand and wrist surgery including a multidisciplinary approach to carpal tunnel syndrome, the management of early-onset arthritis, and rehabilitation of the shoulder and elbow.
Having first graduated in 2000 from Imperial College School of Medicine, Mr Noorani completed his orthopaedic and trauma training before specialising in upper limb surgery and trauma. He went on to complete a prestigious fellowship programme in shoulder, elbow, and upper limb surgery at the Royal Liverpool Hospital as well as 16 months of training with the Shoulder and Elbow Service in Stanmore where he gained valuable expertise in complex revision arthroplasty and instability. He was later awarded two further fellowships from the British Shoulder and Elbow Society fellowship and the British Orthopaedic Association fellowship which enabled him to train further at renowned institutions including Harvard University, the Mayo Clinic, and the Rothman Institute.
