Dr Andrew Higgs is an Orthopaedic Surgeon that specialises in surgery of the Foot and Ankle. Andrew completed his medical training at the University of Sydney and received his specialist qualifications in Orthopaedic Surgery from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. Following this he travelled to Europe to work alongside the most respected Foot and Ankle Surgeons in France, Austria and the United Kingdom.

Andrew’s specialist interest and knowledge is in all Foot and Ankle conditions, particularly sports injuries, deformity correction such as bunion correction and minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Andrew is a teacher of medical students, junior doctors and specialist orthopaedic trainees. He is a clinical lecturer for the University of NSW and Macquarie University as well as a Senior Lecturer in Orthopaedic Surgery at the U. of Notre Dame. Andrew instructs for the RACS.

In this role, he has been called on to treat some of the most devastating limb injuries for Coalition Forces. On his most recent tour Andrew was awarded the U.S. Army Commendation Medal.
