Mr Tony Andrade is a fellowship trained consultant Orthopaedic, Hip and Knee surgeon with a special interest in Hip preservation surgery and arthroscopic hip surgery. He set up this service at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in 2002 and it rapidly evolved into a tertiary referral centre.
He established a local lower limb arthroplasty registry that pre-dated the National Joint Registry (NJR) and established a lower limb arthroplasty fellowship program in 2004. He also then later established a hip arthroscopy fellowship program in 2016.
His interest in optimising treatment of infections in Orthopaedic patients led him to join forces with a consultant microbiologist and form the Combined Orthopaedic and Medical Microbiology Service (COMMS) at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, in 2004. This weekly MDT captures data that has led to a number of publications.
He sits on the Non-Arthroplasty Hip Registry (NAHR) user group for the British Hip Society. This registry captures outcomes from hip preservation surgery nationally.
He has been a member of the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy (ISHA) since it was founded in 2008 and is the current (2020-21) ISHA president, of what is now known as ISHA – The Hip Preservation Society.
He is recognised both nationally and internationally as an expert in hip preservation surgery and has been involved in numerous Delphi and consensus statement projects.
He is a reviewer for six international journals and sits on the editorial board of Hip International.
He has been principal investigator in a number of clinical trials and studies.
His clinical research is internationally recognised having won prizes at EFORT and ESSKA meetings.
He was a senior co-author for the recently published BMJ article on “Arthroscopic hip surgery compared with physiotherapy and activity modification for the treatment of symptomatic femoroacetabular impingement: multicentre randomised controlled trial”. This was a landmark randomised controlled trial that provided level 1 evidence to support arthroscopic hip surgery in the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement.

3) Serum metal ion levels in the Corail / Cathcart hemiarthroplasty used for
developed high metal ion levels within two years of surgery. Results of this study being analysed in preparation for submission for publication

5) The influence of lower limb malrotation on hip pain
Analyses of lower limb rotational profile assessment on the cause of hip pain in a population presenting to a specialist hip clinic. This is an ongoing project where malrotation of femur and tibia are being assessed independently and jointly to determine how these deformities affect hip function, and also how correction of these result in symptomatic improvement."
