Mr Chambler is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon & Clinical Chairman of Circle Bath Hospital. He is a specialist in shoulder and elbow surgery and a large part of his practice is made up of shoulder and elbow joint replacements and tendon problems.

Mr Chambler has been a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon in the UK for the past 14 years. He qualified from St Mary’s Hospital medical School, part of Imperial College, in London. Embarking on his surgical career, his interest soon became Orthopaedics and in particular shoulder and elbow surgery, being awarded his Masters of Surgery degree in this area by the University of London in 2000, under the supervision of Professor Roger Emery.

He gained his Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship with Professor Carr in Oxford and has since been awarded travelling fellowships to UK & Europe as well as to the world renowned Mayo Clinic in the USA, by the British Elbow & Shoulder Society.

He developed the shoulder & elbow service at Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, concentrating on new advanced arthroscopic techniques and joint replacement but also organising quality control with prospective audit of surgical outcome to ensure the highest level
of patient care. He became Clinical Director of Orthopaedics at YDH in 2011.

Whilst continuing at Yeovil, in 2010 he joined CircleBath as a surgical partner to promote a new healthcare provider for the NHS as well as private patients. In 2013 he moved fulltime to Circle as the first Executive Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon working at both the Reading and Bath hospitals. In 2016, he was appointed Clinical Chairman of CircleBath Hospital.


Recently he has been asked to provide a service to King Hamad University Hospital in Bahrain for complex shoulder and elbow problems, visiting 3-4 times per year.


The areas of surgery include the management of sports injuries, tendinopathies and shoulder and elbow arthroplasty. He continues his interest in education and research being faculty for arthroscopic shoulder and elbow courses, peer reviewer for Journals and invited lecturer both national and internationally.


Away from work, Andrew enjoys following sport, skiing and spending time with his wife and children.

Having been suffering from pain and limited mobility in both shoulders, I was referred by my GP to a shoulder specialist at CircleBath early in 2016. Following approval by medical insurers and an X-Ray at my local hospital, I was seen by Mr Chambler within 2 weeks. His initial recommendation was for steroid injections under ultrasound guidance into both shoulder joints. This took place within 2 days and the ultrasound scans indicated 2 torn tendons in one shoulder with inflamed tendons in the other. After 3 weeks, it was clear that the steroid injections had provided only limited relief and following further discussions with Mr Chambler I agreed to proceed with his recommendation for the replacement of my right shoulder joint. Mr Chambler went though in detail with me the various options for replacement surgery and the benefits of proceeding with a ceramic prosthesis. Availability of the prosthesis and Easter holidays meant that it was a further 5 weeks before the surgery was carried out. A pre-assessment visit to CircleBath enabled all the necessary checks, such as blood tests and an ECG to be completed clearing the way for my admission for surgery. Having arrived early, I was shown straight to my room and met both the anaesthetist and surgeon who again went through the detail of the forthcoming surgery including explaining the risks. The operation itself went extremely well and I was back in my room within a couple of hours. The nursing staff were most attentive and ensured that I was comfortable and that pain relief and medication was maintained. Catering too was excellent although my lack of appetite could not do justice to the delicious selection on offer. I was out of bed later in the day and saw the physio for initial exercises and mobilising the joint. After a two night stay I was fit to be discharged and left with detailed instructions on the care of the wound, as well as a protocol for the ongoing rehabilitation by my local physiotherapist.


I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your hard work, professionalism and expertise with my shoulder. The progress has been amazing and I am now back to playing golf and swimming.
