    About

    Mr Andrew Goldberg is renowned London Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in foot and ankle disorders. He is known for his non-interventional approach and treatment plans that keep in mind the patient's concerns and lifestyle. He works in a multidisciplinary setting, including podiatrists, physiotherapists, Pilates instructors and orthotists, which helps avoid surgery on more than 85% of patients he sees.

    Mr Goldberg is fellowship trained and is a Visiting Professor in Trauma & Orthopaedics at Imperial College London and an Associate Professor at UCL.  He was an Honorary Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Foot & Ankle Surgery at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore between 2010 and 2018 and is the Chief Investigator on the TARVA Study which is run across 17 NHS Hospitals and is comparing ankle replacement against ankle fusion.

    He runs other research studies to discover new and innovative treatments from stem cells for cartilage repair, to the outcomes and effectiveness of foot and ankle surgery.  Andrew Goldberg pioneered the introduction of the patient-specific PROPHECY™ instrumentation technique, which enables ankle joint replacements to be personalised to the patient’s anatomy and thus perfectly tailored to the needs of each individual patient.

    In 2011, Mr Goldberg was awarded an OBE by the Queen for services to Medicine. He is a sought-after international lecturer and is well-published in peer-reviewed journals.

    I had a left ankle replacement under Mr Goldberg, and am delighted. I have seen experts from all around the world and hesitated for more than 5 years and my only wish was that I saw Mr Goldberg earlier as his explanation, support (from him and his team) and care have surpassed any expectations I had. I have my life back and am so grateful.

    "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."
