New Surgeon joins Orthopaedic Team
York Teaching Hospital has strengthened its Orthopaedic Team with the appointment of an additional surgeon.
Mr Cash joins the team as a lower limb arthroplasty (hip and knee) surgeon. Based at Bridlington Hospital he will run clinics out of Malton, York and Bridlington Hospitals.
Mr Cash will take all referrals regarding hip and knee degenerative disease, revision hip and knee procedures as well as arthroscopic surgery for degenerative meniscal tears.
He joins the Trust from Wrightington Centre for Hips where he was a senior fellow. He explained: “I am delighted to be joining the Orthopaedic Department at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
“I specialise in hip and knee surgery and will be taking all referrals regarding hip and knee degenerative disease, revision hip and knee procedures as well as arthroscopic surgery for degenerative meniscal tears.
“Whilst keen to embrace modern techniques and ideas in lower limb surgery, the foundation of my practice utilises proven implants and techniques to maximise implant longevity and patient satisfaction.
“I look forward to meeting and working with local GPs and patients in the near future.”
Mr Nick Carrington, York Teaching Hospital Orthopaedic Consultant Surgeon said: “We are pleased to be able to strengthen our Orthopaedic service with the appointment of Mr Cash.
“Since the East Coast elective orthopaedic service moved from Scarborough Hospital to Bridlington Hospital in April 2014 the service has gone from strength to strength.
“We now have eight orthopaedic surgeons covering all specialties; this enables us to provide more orthopaedic specialist services closer to patients’ homes including expanding our services at Malton Hospital."
