Knee Specialist, Portsmouth, Hampshire: Andrew Cossey
Knee Specialist, Portsmouth, Hampshire: Andrew Cossey

A Portsmouth-based trauma and orthopaedic surgeon specialising exclusively in the diagnosis and treatment of knee problems, including knee ligament damage, knee cartilage damage, sports injuries and osteoarthritis of the knee joint.


Mr Andrew Cossey is Consultant Knee Surgeon at Portsmouth NHS Trust.  He offers private investigation and treatment of knee conditions at Spire Portsmouth Hospital.


An experienced knee specialist in Portsmouth

Trained in London, Wessex and South Australia, Mr Cossey was appointed as Consultant Knee Surgeon at Portsmouth NHS Trust in 2005.  Focusing solely on knee conditions, he works in close collaboration with a designated anaesthetist and local physiotherapists to provide a friendly, comprehensive private service for patients with knee symptoms such as pain, swelling, locking and instability.


Knee conditions treated by Mr Andrew Cossey

Mr Cossey offers expert treatment for the full range of conditions affecting the knee joint, including:


  • Anterior cruciate ligament damage
  • Knee ligament damage
  • Meniscal tear
  • Chondral injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Knock knees
  • Bow-leggedness


Knee replacement surgery in Hampshire

The bone surfaces in the knee joint are covered with articular cartilage, a strong flexible material that allows the surfaces to move smoothly over one another.  When this cartilage becomes worn or damaged, as a result of injury, disease or, most commonly, the degenerative changes associated with ageing, the bone surfaces can rub against each other causing pain, swelling and stiffness in the joint.  Early arthritic symptoms can be managed non-surgically using painkillers, medication, lifestyle changes and eventually corticosteroid injections into the joint, however when the ability to perform everyday activities becomes compromised, knee replacement surgery provides significant relief from pain and functional improvement in the majority of patients treated.


Mr Cossey is highly skilled in all forms of knee replacement surgery, offering both total knee replacement where both sides of the knee joint are replaced, and partial or unicompartmental knee replacement, a less invasive procedure where only the area of the joint affected by arthritis is replaced.


Expert knee realignment surgery

Mr Cossey also offers knee alignment surgery (knee osteotomy), an alternative treatment to total knee replacement suitable for younger, active patients.  In cases where there is arthritic damage to only one side of the knee, removing a wedge of shinbone from under the healthy side of the knee transfers the weight to an area of the knee where the cartilage is still healthy and means that the arthritic surfaces do not rub against each other.  Knee realignment surgery can delay the need for a total knee replacement for up to ten years, reducing the need for more complex revision knee replacement surgery in the future.
