Bhart Shemar DO ND Registered Osteopath Bachelor of Osteopathic Medicine (Honours)
Bhart Shemar graduated from the prestigious British College of Osteopathic Medicine. During his five year degree, he received numerous awards and was also presented with the ‘Student of the year prize’ in his final year. Bhart subsequently returned to his alma mater, working as a lecturer and clinical tutor, training and examining students in clinical skills and physical diagnosis. Bhart has now been practising as an Osteopath for over a decade.
During that time he qualified as a Naturopath and uses this knowledge alongside Osteopathy to meet his patients' needs. Bhart is passionate about Osteopathy and is an attentive and caring practitioner. As an Osteopath, he seeks to find the root cause of his patient’s problem and avoids treating their symptoms in isolation. Bhart tailors his Osteopathic treatment to achieve the best results for his patients, personalising his treatment plan to suit his patients needs and their individual lifestyle. Patient education and preventative medicine are at the heart of Bhart’s approach and he encourages positive lifestyle changes for his patients wherever possible. He empowers his patient by giving them a clear understanding of their complaint, and what is causing it. This helps them how best to address the problem and minimise the risk of recurrence.
Prior to his training as an Osteopath, Bhart worked as an Accident and Emergency nurse for many years, gaining extensive experience across numerous specialties ranging from paediatrics, cardiology to emergency trauma. In total Bhart has over two decades of clinical experience. As a nurse, he also mentored and assessed nursing students and newly qualified Staff Nurses within his Accident and Emergency department. Bhart has learnt how resilient the human body can be, as well as what can go wrong when it is not correctly cared for.
Patient safety is of paramount importance to Bhart and he therefore maintains his continuing professional development, keeping his clinical skills and knowledge up to date. Alongside his Osteopathic skills Bhart is also trained in Medical Acupuncture and Sports/Kinesio taping. Working as an Osteopath, Bhart combines his knowledge of all these techniques, together with his Osteopathy, Naturopathy and clinical skills to achieve the most effective results for his patients. Using his years of clinical experience, Bhart looks for signs of underlying conditions, and on occasion will refer patients as needed for further clinical investigations, such as an MRI scan, or for a consultation with a specialist consultant. Bhart is also trained in taking blood for analysis if required.
