Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andrew Cossey at Spire include:
I perform a high volume of knee replacement surgery. My main surgical interests are sports-related injuries of the knee including chondral damage, meniscal damage and ligament reconstruction.
I also have a significant interest in joint replacement surgery which includes both total and unicompartmental knee replacement surgery.
My main drive through medical school studies was to perform sports-related surgery. During my training at King's College London I had good exposure to all aspects of medical care with a specific focus to knee surgery achieving my University of London MBBS in 1992.
My orthopaedic training was also predominantly spent on the South Coast. I became a Specialist Registrar in 1998 after a year of research at Portsmouth NHS Trust. During my training I worked in Southampton, Bournemouth, Poole and Basingstoke as well as Portsmouth.
In 2003 and 2004 I spent a year in Australia, purely designated to sports injuries of the knee. I was a Sports Knee Surgeon at SportsMed SA, a private institution in Adelaide. I gained significant experience in all aspects of knee surgery, in particular, ligament reconstruction, arthroscopy, meniscal repair, chondral resurfacing and unicompartmental and total knee replacement surgery.
During this time I undertook numerous research projects which resulted in many publications and international presentations. I became a Consultant Knee Surgeon for Portsmouth NHS Trust in 2005.
My philosophy is to provide a friendly patient based service. The quick diagnosis and implementation of a correct treatment plan is essential to restore function. Not all knee problems require surgery. Some conditions self resolve, others need physiotherapy whilst other conditions respond to injection therapy. I work closely with numerous rehabilitation centres (physiotherapists) on the South Coast. I perform out-patient clinics with physiotherapists in multiple centres all over the Portsmouth area. I have my own designated anaesthetist, Dr Anu Bali. Dr Bali provides an excellent service both pre-operatively and post operatively.
Diagnosis and treatment of knee disorders. I am a specialist knee surgeon and pride myself on the prompt diagnosis and correct treatment plan for knee conditions. My surgical interests include knee arthroscopy (key hole surgery), knee ligament reconstruction, knee realignment, unicompartmental knee replacement and total knee replacement.
