About me

Mr McCaffrey is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Altnagelvin Area Hospital. He specialises in the treatment of hip and knee arthritis via arthroplasty (joint replacement) procedures.

Mr McCaffrey qualified as a doctor in 2001 after completing his medical degree with distinction in medicine and surgery at Queen’s University of Belfast and an honours intercalated degree in Experimental Pathology in the prestigious department of pathology at the University of Edinburgh. He was awarded the prestigious Wilson Orthopaedic Medal following additional written and clinical examinations in orthopaedic surgery.

His basic surgical training centred in Northern Ireland and included the majority of surgical disciplines including plastic surgery. His basic surgical training was followed by a period as an experienced trainee surgeon in trauma + orthopaedics, during which he engaged in research and secured an extended high-volume primary hip + knee joint replacement (arthroplasty) fellowship in 2007 with Professor Beverland at Musgrave Park Hospital.

During this extended high-volume primary hip + knee joint replacement (arthroplasty) fellowship, he completed a large randomised controlled clinical trial comparing knee replacement implants, which was awarded an MD by Queens University of Belfast.

In 2008, he began his higher surgical training dedicated to Trauma + Orthopaedics within the Northern Ireland Deanery, passing his FRCS examinations, before undertaking a additional 12 month foot + ankle fellowship at the Royal Surrey County Hospital and Frimley Park Hospital with Mr Sakellariou, Mr Solan, Mr Halliwell and Mr Wee, that was accredited by the Joint Committee on Surgical Training (JCST), the Specialty Advisory Committee (SAC) in Trauma + Orthopaedics and by the General Medical Council (GMC).

Since 2014, Mr McCaffrey has been a NHS Consultant Trauma + Orthopaedic Surgeon at Altnagelvin Area Hospital within the Western Health and Social Care Trust. His NHS trauma practice includes general adult and paediatric trauma with a subspecialist interest in foot and ankle trauma. His NHS elective practice focuses on the treatment of hip and knee arthritis via arthroplasty (joint replacement) procedures.
Mr McCaffrey treats private patients at Kingsbridge Private Hospital North West in Ballykelly focusing on the treatment of hip and knee arthritis via arthroplasty (joint replacement) procedures.
