Specialises in

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.
