Speakers

Jeremy Bland
Consultant in Clinical Neurophysiology @East Kent Hospitals University NHS Trust, Canterbury UK
Dr Jeremy Bland qualified from Manchester University in 1981 and trained in clinical neurophysiology in the West Midlands before taking up a post as consultant in clinical neurophysiology at the Kent and Canterbury Hospital in 1989. Since 1992 he has developed an interest in all aspects of the epidemiology, aetiology, diagnosis and treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. Since 2006 he has run a clinic dedicated to treating patients with carpal tunnel syndrome as part of a cooperative, multidisciplinary care pathway spanning primary and secondary care. He has also developed an interest in high resolution ultrasound imaging of peripheral nerve disease. He maintains a website devoted to carpal tunnel syndrome at www.carpal-tunnel.net which can provide a quantitative estimate of the probability of CTS in an individual patient with hand symptoms. He also has a wider interest in other entrapment neuropathies and their assessment using neurophysiological and ultrasound techniques.
