Originally from Carlisle, Mr Pieri qualified from Newcastle University medical school in 2007, having also been awarded a distinction in a Masters degree in Research. He completed both his basic and advanced surgical training in hospitals across the North East of England including Durham, Darlington, Middlesbrough & Gateshead. As a senior trainee, he worked under the tutorage of the leading plastic surgeons and breast cancer surgeons at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle upon Tyne. Following this period, he was appointed to join them as a consultant colleague.


Mr Pieri works solely as a breast surgeon in both the NHS and privately. This full time dedication to a specific specialty has allowed Mr Pieri to develop the necessary expertise to perform a range of cancer excision procedures, including advanced plastic surgery techniques to remove more tissue in cases that require it, whilst still preserving the aesthetic appearance of the breast. He also performs complex reconstructive plastic surgery procedures for those that have a breast deformity from previous cancer surgery and more straightforward cosmetic surgery such as breast augmentation, breast reductions, breast uplifts and gynaecomastia excision operations.


With numerous research publications and national presentations to his name, a medical device patent and Chief Investigator status for research into new intra-operative device uses, he is a pioneer in the development of new surgical techniques and technology. He works closely with medical industry, providing an expert opinion on their new technologies relating to breast surgery.


Enjoying both undergraduate and postgraduate education, he is surgical lead for 4th year medical student programmes at Newcastle. Mr Pieri is director for the cadaveric teaching on the prestigious national TIG Oncoplastic Breast Fellowship. This is a highly competitive course where some of the best plastic surgeons and best breast surgeons finishing their training in the UK come to learn advanced plastic surgery techniques to improve the breast aesthetic during cancer removal operations.


When not working, Andrew is usually found either on a bike in Northumberland or in the sea on a surfboard with his family.
