Dr Srinath Kamineni

After qualifying from the University of Wales College of Medicine, I completed basic surgical training in Oxford and Cambridge, and completed my orthopaedic residency in London, England, (University College London and Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital – Stanmore). I further specialized with a AO Shoulder Surgery fellowship with Professor Christian Gerber (Balgrist, Swizerland) and an Elbow Surgery fellowship with Professor Bernard Morrey, Professor Shawn O’Driscoll, and Professor Kai-Nan An (Mayo Clinic, USA).

I was appointed a Senior Clinical Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at Imperial College (London, England), and a Professor of Bioengineering at Brunel University (London, England). In 2006 I was awarded the  Japanese Travelling Fellowship for the European Shoulder and Elbow Society. I returned to the USA in 2009, to the University of Kentucky, in order to develop a sub-specialisation in Elbow and Shoulder, and direct a programme of research into improving our understanding and management of pathologies that afflict these areas.
