About

Mr McAndrew is a Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon based in Reading, UK. Originally graduating with a degree in Medicine from St George's Hospital Medical School in 1990, he went on to complete his basic surgical training in Yorkshire. He undertook two years in full-time research in Sheffield investigating the radiographic classification of callotasis (limb lengthening). After undertaking Higher surgical training in Trauma & Orthopaedics on the Wessex rotation he was appointed as the Illazarov Fellow in Surrey, where he spent a full year in sub-specialist training focusing on trauma and limb reconstruction.

Mr McAndrew introduced the Illazarov system to Reading after he took up a substantive post there in 2007, and has since set up his own limb reconstruction service which focuses on surgical trauma and complex deformity correction cases. He is the Director of Trauma for the Royal Berkshire Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and played a key role in bidding for the Royal Berkshire Hospital to be recognised as an official Trauma Unit. He has continued to undertake positions of authority and leadership at the Trust to this day, and was the Clinical Director of Trauma & Orthopaedics for three years.

Mr McAndrew has an active role in research and is the Lead Clinician for the Clinical Research Network of the Thames Valley and South Midlands Injuries and Emergencies Group. In Reading he has been the principal investigator for 13 national institute of health research (nihr) portfolio studies. He has published widely and has been an invited speaker at trauma conferences in both the UK and Europe.

A very pleasant and clever man. It was a pleasure attending my appointments and he managed to make a good job of repairing my pylon fracture/dislocation in my ankle so that I can nearly walk soundly and best of all I am back on my horses. His secretary, Mary Wilkinson, was a delight.

In July of 2017 I badly broke my leg, fib, tib and ankle. I had a external frame fitted to my leg and every 4 weeks since I have visited the orthopaedics department. It’s been a really tough 6 months and I wouldn’t say that I’ve been impressed with every part of the NHS. The Orthopaedics department staff are awesome and have given me the best care possible. They are always working hard and nothing appears to be too much trouble. My treatment in the Orthopaedics department at RBH has been first class. I’d like to thank everyone there for all their hard work, commitment and outstanding professionalism. The Orthopaedics department at the RBH is the NHS at is best.

Thank you so much for doing a great job to my leg. At least now I can go back to full-time DIY jobs!

Knee Arthroscopy - like I have a new knee! Minimal scaring, no infection picked up, all my false teeth intact from the anaesthetic - what's not to like?

Very knowledgeable and talented surgeon who attended to my badly broken leg. A far from straightforward clinical situation that went on for over 2 years. Furthermore, a very pleasant and likeable man with wonderful bedside manner

Andrew is an excellent trauma and limb reconstruction surgeon. He is clear headed in his thinking, friendly and approachable and a great person to work with. He has expertly looked after and expanded the regional trauma unit due to his hard work and commitment. Most importantly his patients love him and do very very well. If I had to have a limb injury treated I would honestly have myself driven from central london to him to look after me!
