Prior to commencing specialist orthopaedic training, Andrew undertook a 12 month clinical research fellow post based in Bristol, where he developed a keen interest in knee research. His enthusiasm for research and audit has led to numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals and he has presented his research both nationally and internationally. Andrew is a journal reviewer for The Knee and Injury. He teaches nationally and internationally on knee surgery courses.
Andrew has a particular interest in arthroscopic (keyhole) surgery, knee ligament reconstruction and partial knee replacement. Having spent twelve months training at Avon Orthopaedic Centre under Mr Jonathan Eldridge, a national expert in patellofemoral (kneecap) instability, he has developed expertise in this field. He is one of only a handful of knee surgeons who perform trochleoplasty, to stabilise the kneecap, on a regular basis. He is a member of the British and European Knee Society and a committee member for the British Patellofemoral Society.
Andrew lives near Shrewsbury with his wife and three children. He is a very keen sportsman and has played representative level rugby and cricket. He continues to play cricket and golf and regularly undertakes endurance cycle and running events.
