Profile

Geoff Anderson was born in Dublin Ireland but grew up in England. He graduated from the University of Birmingham Medical School in 1982. He completed his post graduate training in the UK, mainly in Leicester, passing the United Kingdom's Intercolleagiate Fellowship in Orthopaedic Surgery in 1994. Geoff was then appointed as a Consultant Surgeon to the Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust where he worked from 1995 until 2003 and during that period he developed an interest in reconstructive surgery for patients with failing joint replacements.

By 2003 Geoff was disillusioned with lifestyle in the UK in general and particularly with working practices within the NHS and was seeking a change. In response to an advertisement in the British Medical Journal Geoff visited the Palmerston North Orthopaedic Group and was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon initially at the Public Hospital before joining the Amesbury Orthopaedic Group two years later in 2005. He continues to practice in both the Public and Private sectors.

He has maintained his interest in adult joint replacement surgery and particularly in revision of failing joint replacements alongside a general adult orthopaedic practice.
