About me

Professor Toms specialises in knee surgery including sports injuries, arthroscopic surgery, complex primary total knee replacement and revision knee surgery as well as maintaining an ongoing commitment in the field of trauma and primary hip replacement surgery. He is the co-ordinator of the Exeter Knee Reconstruction Unit (EKRU) and educational supervisor for the Exeter Knee Fellow, Extended Scope Physiotherapists and Surgical Care Practitioner.

In 2010 Professor Toms was recognised in the Daily Mail's list of Top 10 UK Knee Surgeons. Uniquely, the study by the Daily Mail canvassed the views of top orthopaedic surgeons and asked them “if your own nearest and dearest were to need a knee replacement, who would you refer them to and why?” Impressively, consultant surgeon colleagues around the country recommended Andrew Toms for his technical skill as well as his bedside manner describing him as “technically a good surgeon” with "huge experience in complex knee replacements" whilst being "good-humoured, well trained and empathetic with patients".

•Charnley Trust Foundation Award, 2004
