Mr Andrew Baird is a Consultant in Adolescent and Reconstructive Urology. He graduated from The University of Liverpool Medical School in 1995 and trained in general surgery and urology before beginning higher surgical training in adult urology in the Mersey Region.
Mr Baird was appointed as Adolescent and Reconstructive Urologist in October 2007 between Alder Hey and Aintree University Hospitals NHS Trust. A seamless transition of care from paediatric to adult urology is undertaken across the two hospitals, and as such the service provides high quality care from outpatient clinics, through reconstructive surgery, and onwards into adult healthcare.
His research interests include the long term outcomes for Bladder Exstrophy/Epispadias complex, and long term outcomes of reconstructive urological surgery in children and young adults. Mr Baird is a panel reviewer for a number of Urological journals, and a regular invited speaker at International events talking on Exstrophy/Epispadias, Adolescent Urology and Transitional Care.
Mr Baird regularly undertakes medicolegal cases in the areas of medical negligence (for plaintiff or defendant) and personal/accidental injury claims. His areas of specialist urological expertise are reconstructive urology, voiding dysfunction, adolescent urology and some areas of paediatric urology.
