Dr Andrew Kam is an Australian trained Neurosurgeon; he obtained his medical degree from Sydney University in 1990. After completing his neurosurgery training in 1999, Dr Kam spent 18 months working at the prestigious Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University Medical Centre in California advancing his knowledge in the treatment of complex spinal surgery.

Upon the completion of his spinal fellowship Dr Kam returned to Australia in 2001 and was appointed as a Consultant Neurosurgeon at Westmead Hospital, a teaching hospital affiliated with Sydney University. He is the current Director of Spinal Trauma at Westmead Hospital, and a clinical lecturer for Sydney University. Dr Kam is an elected member of the Executive of the Neurosurgical Society of Australasia, and the society's representative of the New South Wales branch of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

Dr Kam has a strong interest in cervical and lumbar spine surgery for degenerative, traumatic and malignant conditions involving the spine. Initially trained as a general neurosurgeon, Dr Kam has chosen to focus solely on complex spinal surgery, embracing the techniques and technologies of motion preservation spinal surgery and minimally invasive spinal surgery. Dr Kam currently has clinical trials running in cervical disc arthroplasty and non-surgical treatments of discogenic back pain.

Since returning to Australia Dr Kam's practice has expanded and he now consults and operates at Westmead Hospital, Westmead Private Hospital, Sydney Adventist Hospital and Norwest Private Hospital.
