Professional Profile

Mr Jähnich is a Specialist in shoulder and elbow surgery.  He went to medical school in Greifswald, Germany, from 1985 until 1990.  He graduated in 1991 having worked in a training post in sports medicine. At that point, he moved to England in order to improve his language skills. Initially for sporting reasons and later on for family reasons he stayed in the United Kingdom and underwent a full training in surgery in general followed by a specialist orthopaedic training. This included advanced training posts in shoulder and elbow surgery and a hand fellowship.

Since 2004 Mr Jähnich earned his title as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in the management of upper limb problems. Furthermore, he teaches on national and international specialist arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery courses. He was Regional Clinical Coordinator for the National Joint Registry for over ten years, and over the last 10 years of his practice as a consultant, he has developed and broadened his surgical techniques in modern shoulder surgery.

To aid this he has visited world renowned Orthopaedic Surgeons such as Professor Ralph Hertel in Berne, Switzerland and Alex Castagne in Milan, Italy.  He enjoys good relationships with Surgeons around the world and is also part of a regional group of shoulder and elbow Surgeons for the purpose of further professional development and to discuss challenging cases in a forum of like minded individuals.

Personal Profile

In his spare time, Mr Jähnich is a keen rower. He has competed on national and international levels throughout his life. He has won multiple national titles and remains the last ever East German National Champion in the lightweight double sculls and he has won the British National Championships. These days he is still competitive in Masters rowing events. He has also competed in triathlons and long-distance swimming events. He also enjoys playing basketball and golf.

His interest in sports is beneficial to his patients who can expect not only the management of their shoulder and elbow problem but can also be given advanced guidance on what exercises and training programs they can carry out during their rehabilitation.
