Council member lead on private practice
Trained at the Royal Free and the RNOH, Andrew headed to the East Midlands and to Nottingham in 1999. Part of a busy trauma group for many years, his practice is now based around hip surgery. His clinical interest started in London and developed during a year in Boston, at MGH. Away from his hips, the scope of his unit has allowed Andrew a continued understanding of the issues that excite and confront other areas of orthopaedic practice.
His clinical work provides research opportunities and forms the basis of his educational activities. Andrew has travelled widely to lecture and demonstrate his practice, and he set up the Nottingham Revision Course in 2007. His recent work with the Revision Surgery Network, which provides a weekly framework for surgeons from different hospitals to meet ‘virtually’ to discuss complex cases, has received attention nationally and internationally.
Andrew has been on the Executive of the British Hip Society for a number of years and became President in March 2018. His year gave him a better appreciation of the challenges of today’s health economic environment. He saw how the BOA facilitates discussion and provides a cohesive response to support what good
orthopaedics achieves for our patients.
Married to Claire, a GP and with four beautiful and tolerant daughters aged between 21 and 14, Andrew has little time to spare away from my work. When quiet he enjoys travelling, music, gardening, (watching) sport and planning future revisions.
Andrew is passionate about orthopaedics and looks forward to a further opportunity to contribute to our speciality.
