    Andrew is a highly regarded foot & ankle surgical colleague. He deals with both simple and complex cases, for example the consideration of ankle replacement surgery in severe ankle osteoarthritis. He is also excellent for cases whereby diagnosis and management is not straightforward and a comprehensive consultant 2nd opinion is sought.
