Andrew Irwin Home

I see private patients at Spire Hospital, Harpenden, One Hatfield Hospital and the Elms Consulting Rooms, Hall Place Gardens, St Albans.  Free on-site parking is available at all clinics.

Patients come to see me from Berkhamsted, St Albans, Harpenden, Hemel Hempstead, London and some return from abroad  to consult with me following previous treatment.

What I offer

I am consulted for and treat all types of upper limb problem.  I am trained in minimally invasive (arthroscopic or keyhole) surgery which allows fast recovery after surgery with patients able to return to work and sport as quickly as possible.

I really enjoy being consulted by the elderly patient and patients with “wear and tear” problems.  The amazing experiences of older patients and their challenging orthopaedic problems make them interesting and rewarding.

I treat sports injuries in patients of all ages and I am passionate about sport myself.  I see patients – my “weekend warriors” – those who work hard during the week and then love to get out and have a sport-filled weekend.

The Elms Consulting RoomsWhere I see private patients

I see patients at Spire Hospital, Harpenden, One Hatfield and St Albans Shoulder Clinic, based at The Elms Consulting Rooms in Hall Place Gardens, St Albans, AL1 3SF.

Contact 0800 585112  or e-mail for a clinic appointment.  I am an approved BUPA premier consultant and have a good relationship with major healthcare insurers.
