MB BCh MSc FRCSI FRCS(Tr & Orth)
Mr Andrew Mahon is a Specialist Hand and Wrist Surgeon. He completed his Specialist Orthopaedic training in the Northern Regional Training Programme based in Newcastle. Following this he spent a year undertaking an Advanced Training Post in Hand Surgery in Birmingham, one of only a small number of such posts in the United Kingdom. He was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic and Hand Surgeon in Durham in 2006, where he took the lead in training the region’s Specialist Trainees in Hand Surgery. He moved to Worcestershire in 2009 to develop a county wide hand service.
He has extensive experience of problems, including injuries, affecting the hand and wrist and all aspects of hand surgery and wrist surgery including arthroscopy. He was the first surgeon in Worcestershire to use collagenase injection to treat Dupuytren’s contracture, and (at the time of writing this profile) is one of only two surgeons providing this treatment in Worcestershire. Mr Mahon believes that treatment of a condition should be tailored to the individual with the problem and that many hand and wrist conditions can be treated without surgery.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andrew Mahon at Spire include:
Arthroscopy, Hand Surgery, Sports injury, Wrist surgery, Dupuytren’s disease, Wrist ligament surgery, Nerve surgery, Ligament reconstruction, Arthroscopic surgery of the wrist, Fractures of hand and wrist, Nerve repair, Tendon repair.

Mr Mahon was born in South Wales and is married with three children.
He is a keen cyclist. Although he no longer competes he devotes much of his free time taking his children to compete national cycling events and swimming events. He also enjoys cooking and reading.
He believes that his family’s experience in competitive sports has given him great insight into the needs of active people dealing with injury and he always tries to treat his patients in the way in which he would like to be treated.
