Mr. Jochen FischerConsultant Orthopaedic & Upper Limb Surgeon

Jochen Fischer is a fully trained Orthopaedic, Trauma and Upper Limb Surgeon practicing at the Spire Regency Hospital in Macclesfield and also the Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle. Mr. Fischer specialises in the treatment of conditions affecting the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand including degenerative conditions, sports injuries and fractures with an emphasis on minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgery.

After graduating from Medical School at the University of Heidelberg his training took him from Germany to the north-west of England, to some of the most prestigious departments for hand and upper limb surgery and far-away places like Soweto and Indianapolis.

Mr. Fischer offers a personalised service with a treatment plan that is tailor-made to a 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 closely with a dedicated upper limb physiotherapist, allowing him to discuss all rehab needs straight away.
