Professional profile

Mr Tony Andrade studied medicine at the London Hospital Medical College graduating in 1990. He was a house officer at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel and Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, before starting his basic and higher surgical training in the Wessex region of the South of England.

He was fellowship trained in hip and knee surgery at Sportsmed-SA in Adelaide, South Australia, and in trauma surgery at the Hennepin County Medical Center, Minneapolis, USA.

He was a Locum Consultant at The Royal Bournemouth Hospital and Poole Hospital NHS Trusts from March 2002 until he took up his substantive post at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust in Reading in July 2002.

Personal profile

Tony went to school in two different countries and trained in Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery in three different continents. He has a love of all motor sports (particularly F1 racing), and in the winter months he is happiest on skis.

In the summer he is happiest on the water, which allows him to continue to enjoy international travel discovering the wonders of different cultures.

He is married with a son and so now enjoys watching his son developing expertise in his own preferred sports.
