My interests lie principally in lower limb surgery. I specialise specifically in complex hip surgery including revision hip surgery, resurfacing, uncemented and cemented replacements. I use a variety of bearing surfaces including metallic surfaces, ceramic and also the more traditional metal on polyethylene (plastic). The principal types of hip replacement that I use include the Trident uncemented cup (Stryker), the Onifit uncemented Stryker stem, the Exeter stem and also the Birmingham resurfacing.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Andrew Skyrme include:
Revision, minimally invasive & complex hip surgery
Forefoot and Hind foot surgery
I live with my wife, Carmel, and two boys Declan and Marcus, in Alfriston, East Sussex. My wife and I have just built a new house and have spent the last two years on this project. My main interests outside of work include playing golf, sailing and gardening.
I am originally from Wales and am a keen rugby supporter having played rugby for Guy’s Hospital.
