Mr Andrew (Fred) Robinson

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

BSc, FRCS (Orth)


Specialises in

  • Bunion removal and treatment
  • Ankle replacement and fusion
  • Achilles tendon reconstruction and repair
  • Flat foot correction

I undertake a full range of orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery and is developing a minimally invasive forefoot service. I undertake surgery for sporting injuries, both arthroscopic and open, to the foot and ankle and also undertakes ankle replacements for ankle arthritis. I have been instrumental in setting up and adding the ankle replacement to the National Joint Registry a couple of years ago.

Having trained with a number of eminent foot and ankle specialists in the UK, United States and France, I took up a post at Addenbrooke's Hospital as a Consultant in Orthopaedics and Traumatology, taking over the 'foot & ankle' case load that had been left by my predecessor which is based at the Cambridge Spire Lea.

Over the years, I have undertaken a broad range of foot and ankle surgery and have built a national and international reputation for my foot and ankle surgical care.

My clinical practice covers the full range of foot and ankle surgery. I treat both trauma and orthopaedic conditions of the foot and in the National Health Service run the very busy foot and ankle surgery service at Addenbrooke’s since 1999.
