Mark Andrews

I am a general orthopaedic surgeon working in Scarborough Hospital with a special interest in both primary and revision hip and knee replacement surgery.

I trained in London and Yorkshire then undertook a fellowship in Revision Hip and Knee Surgery in Leeds before taking up a consultant post at Scarborough Hospital in 1997.

My academic interests include hydroxyapatite hip replacement, bone remodelling and fractures around hip replacements, avoidance of blood transfusion, biomechanics of the hip and the optimal treatment of hip fracture patients.

I have lectured on hip and knee replacement surgery in the UK , Germany, Spain and Ireland and have helped to establish and run the Furlong Hip Replacement training course for Surgeons. I use the Furlong hip and Nexgen (including the Gender knee) knee routinely but recognise the need to adapt the operation to suite each individual.

I have been regional representative for the National Joint Registry and am more recently the Medical Director for Scarborough Hospital since April 2009. It keeps me busy.

I have particular interest in:

  • Hip and Knee Replacement for young people
  • Problems following hip and knee replacement surgery
  • Revision hip and knee replacement surgery
  • Attending the person, not just the body
