Mr R Andrew Sankey

Andrew Sankey is a central London Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. He specialises in the treatment of all aspects of shoulder and elbow problems. He is a trauma surgeon treating fractures, tendon and ligament tears, and dislocations of the shoulder, humerus, elbow and forearm and has nearly 15 years experience.

Mr Sankey also treats more chronic conditions, such as arthritis of the shoulder, sometimes requiring total shoulder arthroplasty,  management of primary and recurrent shoulder instability, repair of rotator cuff tears, and common conditions of impingement and ACJ problems that require arthroscopic (key-hole) surgery.

He has had a variety of leadership and advisory roles both in the NHS and private sector. He has been the service director and clinical director of Chelsea and Westminster NHS Hospitals Trust Orthopaedic Department on several occasions, and helped to steer the department through the COVID pandemic. He sits on the Medical Advisory Committee at King Edward VII’s Hospital and represents the Shoulder and Elbow Consultants at The Lister Hospital in the wider HCA private hospital group.

Mr Sankey has research interests in proximal humerus fracture fixation methods, the placement of the glenoid component in Total Joint Arthroplasty, and bone cell biology pertaining to osseointegration of humeral implants.

He is the current President of Imperial College School of Medicine Golf Society.  Many of the conditions he treats are related to those sports which very much helps with the doctor/ patient understanding, relationship and understanding.
