He works with hand therapists and gives due consideration to both surgical and non-surgical options.Mr Shyamalan developed a particular passion for rugby and played for Durham County at school level. Unfortunately, He broke his scaphoid bone (one of the carpal bones on the thumb side of the wrist) which required surgery, and started his love of hand surgery. He is still involved in cricket and squash, although he has stopped full contact rugby as it plays havoc with ones fingers! Mr Shyamalan believes the real secret to his success is his wife and two little girls. In a changing landscape, steering his two girls to a happy life is his main goal and they enjoy many activities together. Love all, serve all.
