Mr Andrew James
Consultant Podiatrist / MSK Specialist
Bsc (Hons), MChS, HCPCreg
Having qualified in 1994 I worked in the NHS for seven years including two years as Head of Orthotic Services in North Glamorgan NHS Trust. In 2001 I decided to work exclusively in the private sector with a focus on elite sport. In the last 15 years I have worked closely with many elite sports organisations/companies including The WRU, ECB, Puma and a number of Premier League Football Clubs. I have been a Consultant Podiatrist to the Emirates Airline based in Dubai for the last three years.
Whilst I specialise in sports injuries, I can assess and advise on the full spectrum of lower limb injuries/pathology. I have special interests in assessing the dynamic foot, orthotic therapy, paediatrics, toe nail surgery under local anaesthesia and sports injuries.
Whilst I now practice exclusively from Spire Cardiff Hospital, I retain my responsibility for a number of premier league football clubs, professional rugby clubs and enjoy the innovative work with the Emirates Airline in Dubai.
In addition to my clinical work I am proud to be a visiting lecturer at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andrew James at Spire include:
Gait analysis, assessment of the dynamic foot using plantar pressure measurements
Spire Cardiff Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
