Andrew Quaile
Consultant Spinal and Orthopaedic Surgeon, London


Mr Andrew Quaile F.R.C.S. is a consultant spinal and orthopaedic surgeon, providing treatment at The Hampshire Clinic, Old Basing, Basingstoke, Hampshire and Mount Alvernia Hospital, Harvey Rd, Guildford, Surrey. He has developed the One Stop Clinic which offers initial assessment, MRI scan, review appointment and treatment plan all within a single day. At present he is one of only fifty five full-time spinal orthopaedic surgeons practising in the United Kingdom.


Mr Quaile is Medical Director of SpineWorks which is based within The Hampshire Clinic, Basingstoke. SpineWorks has a team of consultant spinal surgeons, consultant pain specialists and clinical psychologists who work closely together, are highly motivated, and are committed to providing a caring and comprehensive service for patients.


SpineWorks provides consultations on a wide range of spinal and back problems, running a wide range of events throughout the South-East. As well as offering expertise and advice to the general public, SpineWorks is committed to educating all levels of health professionals in back care best practice.


Mr Quaile qualified from Charing Cross Hospital in 1978 and spent a number of years practising medicine in the Royal Navy. He then joined the Royal Australian Army Medical Corps and completed his orthopaedic surgical training at Southampton General Hospital, in the UK. On accreditation as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in 1992 he pursued a career in Australia initially as a Consultant in Orthopaedics in the Royal Australian Army Medical Corps, as a Lt. Colonel, and then in full time private practice with a special interest in spines based at St Andrews War Memorial Hospital in Brisbane, Australia. On return to the United Kingdom in 1996, he took up a two year consultant post in general orthopaedics with a special interest in spines, at the East Somerset Trust. In October 1998 he was appointed Consultant Spinal & Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Frimley Park Hospital NHS Trust.


His practice was almost exclusively that of spinal disorders. In 2004 Mr Quaile made the decision to leave the NHS and set up in full time private practice with the aim of developing a multi disciplinary organisation of specialists committed to providing high quality spinal care to individuals.


Mr Quaile is keen to offer patients the option of non-operative solutions for their symptoms before considering surgery unless there is no alternative. When surgery is appropriate he would tend to consider minimal access techniques first and foremost as they are less invasive and have fewer risks and complications. He holds monthly clinical meetings, ensuring best medical practice, at BMI The Hampshire Clinic Hospital.
