Professional profile:

Andrew is a specialist hip and knee surgeon with interests in pelvic & acetabular surgery and lower limb trauma reconstructive surgery.

 He is currently a full time Consultant in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery at Addenbrookes, Cambridge University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. He also consults and operates at the Spire Cambridge Lea and Cambridge Nuffield Hospitals. In addition he is a Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon in the Royal Army Medical Corps (V), having served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

He was trained in the Oswestry Orthopaedic Programme during which time he was awarded the FRCS (Orth) and subsequent CCT in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery.  His clinical and research interests centre on hip and knee arthroplasty, pelvic and acetabular surgery, lower limb trauma reconstructive surgery, outcome measures following joint replacement and orthopaedic training and education.

Andrew has undertaken a one-year SAC approved AO Fellowship in Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Toronto, a world-renowned academic institution, working with many eminent surgeons including Professor Marvin Tile, Dr Joseph Schatzker, Professor Hans Kreder and Professor Alan Gross. During his time there he was awarded a Fellowship Diploma from the University of Toronto. Throughout his orthopaedic training, Andrew has had extensive exposure to complex primary and revision hip/knee arthroplasty as well as high energy polytrauma, in both the civilian and military setting. In particular, he has extensive fellowship-level experience in the management of pelvic and acetabular fractures, periprosthetic fractures and lower limb arthroplasty.   Andrew has attended international training courses and specialist meetings in Canada, USA and throughout Europe.

Andrew has been involved in educational instruction throughout his professional career, from medical student teaching to lecturing at international meetings. In addition to being an OSCE examiner for the University of Toronto during his fellowship year, he currently teaches orthopaedic registrars and other junior doctors as well as undergraduate medial students at Cambridge University. He is an ALS and Battlefield ATLS instructor, having taught these courses since 2003.

With an ongoing research portfolio covering basic science and clinical practice, Andrew has collaborated in studies with university departments and orthopaedic companies.  Andrew currently has over 80 peer reviewed publications and presentations, both at international and national conferences, on a wide range of arthroplasty and trauma reconstructive topics. He is a reviewer for the British Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery and wishes to continue his interest in academic orthopaedics in the future.
