Mr Andrew Cole
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
BSc, MB BS, FRCS (Tr & Orth)
I am a consultant orthopaedic and trauma surgeon, running a specialised practice in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the shoulder. All of the appropriate skills and facilities are available at my clinic allowing diagnostic arthroscopy, arthroscopic procedures, joint replacement and fracture fixation.
I trained in general surgery in Bristol and obtained my FRCS in 1994 in London. I then specialised in orthopaedic surgery on the Oxford regional training programme, obtaining the specialist orthopaedic exam (FRCS Tr and Orth) in 1999 and obtaining my certificate of completion of training in 2001.
During my training I have completed clinical fellowships in shoulder surgery (Oxford) as well as orthopaedic trauma and post trauma reconstruction surgery at Sunnybrook Hospital, Toronto, Canada.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andrew Cole at Spire include:
Orthopaedics - elbow and shoulder
Mr Cole is part of Southampton Shoulder Clinic dedicated to the provision of expert and patient focussed care for the full range of shoulder disorders. Common treatments include: sports injuries, rotator cuff problems, dislocations and instability, joint replacement surgery, fracture surgery.
Spire Southampton 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.
I have published several papers on disorders of the shoulder and elbow and orthopaedic trauma and have been invited to write book chapters for the forthcoming Oxford Textbook of Orthopaedics and Trauma and the new edition of Medicolegal Reporting in Orthopaedic Trauma.
I was born in 1965 in Plymouth. In 1990 I completed a medical degree at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, London. I am married with three daughters and enjoy golf, windsurfing and skiing.
