Biography

Having trained with a number of eminent foot and ankle specialists in the UK, United States and France, Andrew 'Fred' Robinson took up a post at Addenbrookes Hospital as a Consultant in Orthopaedics and Traumatology, taking over the 'foot & ankle' case load that had been left by his predecessor.

Fred Robinson has now moved his foot and ankle practice to the Cambridge Spire Lea. The Cambridge Foot and Ankle Clinic opened its doors on 1st January 2012 and Fred is looking forward to working with the Cambridge Spire Lea to develop a Centre of Excellence for foot and ankle surgical services.

Fred has run the foot and ankle service at Addenbrooke’s since 1999. He has recently finished his year as President of the British Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Surgical Society. Over the years, he has undertaken a broad range of foot and ankle surgery and has built a national and international reputation for his foot and ankle surgical care. He has published three chapters in various Oxford textbooks in Medicine and has now published over 30 articles referenced on PubMed.

Fred’s clinical practice covers the full range of foot and ankle surgery. He treats both trauma and orthopaedic conditions of the foot and in the National Health Service runs the very foot and ankle surgery service at Addenbrooke’s.

Fred undertakes a full range of orthopaedic foot and ankle surgery and he is developing a minimally invasive forefoot service. He undertakes surgery for sporting injuries, both arthroscopic and open, to the foot and ankle and also undertakes ankle replacements for ankle arthritis. He was instrumental in setting up and adding the ankle replacement to the National Joint Registry a couple of years ago.
