Mr Arsan consistently uses up to date techniques such as the WALANT (Wide Awake Local Anaesthetics No Tourniquet) as well as evidence-based treatments and minimally invasive (including keyhole) surgery, which enables him to achieve good surgical outcomes.

Nicoloff, a leading total-wrist arthroplasty surgeon in Germany. He was then appointed Lead Hand Surgeon of the Trauma & Orthopaedics Department of St. Bonifatius Hospital.
Mr Arsan gained experience working in the academic teaching hospitals of North Rhine-Westphalia, affiliated to the University of Münster, where his post incorporated trauma and management of both non-operative & operative management of high/low-velocity injuries as well as sports injuries.
