Mr Andrew Hamer

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon (Hip & Knee)

MB, ChB, MD, FRCS(Orth)

Specialises in

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Northern General Hospital, with a private practice at Spire Claremont Hospital.

I was a medical student in Bristol, where I first developed my interest in Orthopaedic Surgery. I then moved to a registrar post in Sheffield where I have stayed since. I was awarded an MD from the University of Sheffield for my work on allograft bone strength in revision hip surgery in 1997. I was then awarded a Wishbone Trust travelling fellowship in 1997, and spent my fellowship in Melbourne, Australia in 1997-1998 furthering my sub-specialty training.

I was appointed as a consultant to the Northern General Hospital in 1998 with a special interest in hip and knee arthroplasty and revision surgery.

I was the previous Training Programme Director for the South Yorkshire registrar training programme and sat on the Specialist Advisory Committee at the Royal College of Surgeons, advising on training issues. I am an examiner for the FRCS (Orth) exam for trainees completing their training. I was elected to be Vice President of the British Hip Society in March 2019 and will become President in 2020.

I have an active role in research into hip and knee replacement surgery.
