Clinical interests

Andy Langdown is an accomplished hip and knee surgeon and has a particular expertise in knee replacement (both primary and revision, including partial knee replacement), knee arthroscopy and ligament reconstruction, hip replacement (both primary and revision), hip arthroscopy and hip impingement surgery.

As patients’ functional demands following joint replacement have increased, technology has advanced to cater for this need. Mr Langdown is a strong advocate of tailoring treatment to patient demand and uses many modern techniques in his daily clinical practice. Such techniques include the use of minimal access surgery, uncemented hip replacement, partial knee replacement, high performance bearings (e.g. ceramic-on-ceramic hip replacement, Oxinium knee replacement) and rapid postoperative rehabilitation
