Biography

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. Young Scientist of the Year Award winner – World Congress Bone, Muscle and Joint Disease

“Gone are the days where patients with hip and knee arthritis are sent away to wait until there arthritis is bad enough to need a joint replacement. This reactive approach to medicine is outdated and cruel. It has been my pleasure to have a hand in developing new biological treatments for arthritis and watch them progress from the laboratory bench to the bedside. Regenerative treatments such as platelet rich plasma injections have massively improved my patients pain, function and overall quality of life. The future of arthritis treatment is proactive. Biological and cellular treatments allow us to intervention early in the disease process by using the patient’s own biology to improve pain, reduce inflammation and repair their damaged joints.”

Andrew is a keen sportsman who played rugby for Worcester RFC and represented England at junior levels. His boat crew won the Nottingham national rowing championships and more recently was selected to represent Great Britain in the 2016 European Powerlifting Championships.

Mr Andrew Miller studied Medicine at Cardiff University obtaining his Medical degree in 2008 and returned to complete his Doctorate in Cartilage Tissue Engineering in 2019.

Mr Andrew Miller has undertaken the prestigious Bristol Advanced Hip fellowship as well as being nationally selected as the TIG Major Trauma fellow to work alongside the military at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. 

Received fellowship from the OTA to work overseas in Tampa, USA. There he worked alongside top USA trauma surgeons and honed his surgical skills in the use of the latest robotic joint replacement surgery techniques.

What People Say About Us

Client Testimonials

“6 weeks out and I can’t believe it. I feel like I have my life back again.”
The last 36 hours since my Monday morning injection have been pain free and luxurious in easy movement. A massive improvement. Hardly any sign of a limp. Thanks again
Just wanted to say thank you for the knee jabs. I wasn’t convinced they were doing anything then one day 3 weeks ago I was walking down the road and realised I wasn’t walking like a pirate with a wooden leg anymore. The difference now is remarkable and I actually think my knee is finally healed.
