Orthopaedic surgeon who is a specialist in all forms of knee surgery including sports injuries, cruciate ligament reconstruction, realignment surgery and chondral resurfacing of the knee.
Mr Andrew James Cossey FRCS, MBBS is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Queen Alexandra Hospital and Spire Portsmouth Hospital and also runs a private practice in Havant, Hampshire. Mr Cossey's medical school training was at Kings College, London, and after qualifying, he spent the first two years of his training in London gaining experience in accident and emergency and also demonstrating anatomy at St George’s Medical School. He then went to Wessex having been accepted on a Basic Surgical Training programme. Having completed this, he was awarded a registrar rotation in trauma and orthopaedics in the same region. He gained valuable experience working for many experienced surgeons and was awarded his FRCS (Tr & Orth), being placed on the GMC specialist register of orthopaedic surgeons in 2005.
In 2004, Mr Cossey spent a year in Adelaide, South Australia working at SportsMed SA, a hospital specialising in sports injuries and joint replacement surgery. He gained vast amounts of experience in all aspects of knee surgery including ligament reconstruction, arthroscopy, meniscal repair, chondral ‘resurfacing’, unicompartmental knee replacement and total knee replacement surgery. He was actively involved in numerous research projects, culminating in several publications and many presentations.
Mr Cossey’s main surgical emphasis is on the treatment of sports-related knee injuries and knee replacement surgery. Mr Cossey has significant experience in all forms of knee surgery including ligament reconstruction, knee replacement surgery (unicompartmental knee replacement and total knee replacement), arthroscopic knee surgery, realignment surgery and chondral resurfacing of the knee. Mr Cossey’s only surgical interest is related to the knee joint and therefore he has gained a large volume of experience in both non-operative and operative treatments for knee conditions.
Mr Cossey is a big believer in accelerated rehabilitation programmes following surgical intervention. He works closely with several rehabilitation units in the Portsmouth region which aim to achieve successful early rehabilitation of all knee conditions.
Mr Cossey has multiple publications in the orthopaedic literature. These include articles and clinical papers on total knee replacement, unicompartmental knee replacement, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and patellofemoral malalignment procedures. Mr Cossey has multiple active research projects including chondral resurfacing with new scaffolds, fixation of ligament reconstructions and analysis of the interface of knee replacements and bone following knee replacement surgery.
