Mr Andrew Goldberg
Mr Andrew Goldberg specialises solely in foot and ankle conditions. He works in a multidisciplinary setting including podiatrists, physiotherapists, and orthotists.
His practice is entirely focused on listening to patients' needs and he believes strongly in outcomes-based treatments. He qualified at St Mary’s Hospital Medical School (Imperial College) in 1994. His specialist training was on the North East Thames rotation in trauma and orthopaedics with a specialist fellowship in complex foot and ankle disorders at the Oxford Nuffield Orthopaedic Hospital with Mr Paul Cooke. Prior to this, he also spent a year on a travelling fellowship to 15 centres of excellence across the US and Europe including visits to Dr Mark Myerson, Professor Beat Hintermann, Dr Chris Coetzee, Dr Steve Haddad and Professor Hakon Koefed. Mr Goldberg was appointed as a consultant at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust in April 2010, in a joint appointment with UCL as a Clinical Senior Lecturer.
