Mr R Andrew Sankey studied at St John's College, Cambridge and then St Mary's Hospital, London, and qualified in July 1997. He trained as a Specialist Registrar in Trauma and Orthopaedics on the University College Hospital/Middlesex rotation in London.
He spent twelve months sub specialising and researching in Upper Limb Surgery at the Shoulder Unit at St Mary's Hospital and the Department of Biomechanical Engineering Imperial College, and completed his sub specialist training at the Shoulder Unit at University College Hospital.
Current Clinical and Research Interests:
Basic Science research into Human osteoblast behaviour in distinct bone locations of the proximal humerus, with regard to osteogenic and pro-angiogenic potential, and its implications for design of Total Shoulder Arthroplasty prostheses.
