The latest development in hip and knee replacement surgery.
Mr Andrew Shepherd, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

I was born and bred in the Midlands and have returned to work as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon in Warwickshire after extensive training in the UK and abroad.

I graduated from Bristol Medical School in 1998 having also spent time studying in Strasbourg at the University of Louis Pasteur and at Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town.  I completed my basic surgical training at Bristol Royal Infirmary including six months working at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, Australia.  I worked with the Exeter Hip Team as part of my higher surgical training.  I was awarded the Cutner Travelling Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons in 2008 to undertake a fellowship in complex hip and knee surgery in Canada before returning to Warwick.

My main interests are in the treatment of complex hip and knee problems.  I am an expert in minimally invasive surgery and in treating active patients who wish to recover quickly from surgery.

I specialise in:

  • Hip Surgery – including minimally invasive surgery, primary hip replacements (cemented and uncemented), and complex revision surgery.
  • Knee Surgery – including arthroscopic surgery and knee replacements.
  • Trauma Surgery – particularly fractures around joint replacements.
