“Dr Andy Franklyn-Miller is one of the worlds leading sports and exercise medicine specialists”





Dr Andy Franklyn-Miller completed his medical training at Imperial College, London in 1998. Before Medical School he started a successful rowing coaching career, in which he has  coached Team GB  at the World Junior Championship, Coupe de La Jeunesse and successes with Imperial College and the Temple Cup  and St Pauls School, London and the Princess Elizabeth Cup  at Henley Royal Regatta.

After Medical School, Andy joined the Royal Navy and served with the Royal Marines before starting  cardiothoracic surgical training, he transferred to Sports Medicine to take up the post of Team GB Rowing doctor and completed higher specialist training in the UK and Australia as the Royal Navy’s Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine. Read More ↓ 


His final post before leaving the Military was as Head of Research and Director of the Centre for Human Performance, Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation at The Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre, Headley Court. 

Dr Franklyn-Miller has worked as Team doctor to British Olympic Rowing, England Rugby, Melbourne Storm Rugby League and the New Zealand Black Ferns alongside work for UK Athletics. He has appeared on the BBC Breakfast sofa, Radio 5 live, and Irelands Newstalk and RTE television and radio. He is a regular media contributor on athlete preparation, injury prevention and biomechanics and a regular contributor to both his own podcast and the BJSM podcast .

In 2007, he started a research clinical Fellowship at the Centre for Health, Exercise and Sports Medicine at the University of Melbourne, this research has led to over 40 research publications on groin pain, fascial injury, injury prevention and sports medicine anatomy. Check the research section to read many of these papers.

Andy is a co author of Clinical Sports Anatomy, the leading Sports Medicine anatomy text and  an author of Chapters in both “Sports injury prevention and rehabilitation” and the “IOC Manual of Sports Injuries”.

Andy’s current research is focussed on the use of artificial intelligence and mathematical modelling of 3D biomechanical athlete data on algorithms for rehabilitation optimisation in shoulder reconstruction, low back pain, knee injury, ACL-R, osteoarthritis, athletic groin pain and  lower limb overuse injury.

Andy lives in the UK with his wife, Shannon, and their children William, Sienna and Noah. He is Director of Sports Medicine , at Irelands leading Orthopaedic Hospital  “The Sports Surgery Clinic” in Dublin and is the creator of SSCLab, a unique testing centre designed to enhance exercise prescription for rehabilitation using VICON motion capture and data analytics. SSC Sports Medicine, is housed in a purpose built 14,000 sqft unit with over 60 staff  seeing  over 1000 patients a week and is the busiest sports medicine clinic in Europe.

The Sports Surgery Clinic is Ireland’s leading private Orthopaedic hospital with over 40 Orthopaedic surgeons, 100 beds and 7 operating theatres sited 10 minutes form Dublin Airport.

Andy fill’s any spare time as a hobby winemaker at Wootton Vineyard, and shepherd of Balwen Welsh Mountain Sheep.

For over two centuries medicine has been based on the principles of Sir William Osler. The foundation of medicine relies on the clinical history and examination of the patient in order to make a diagnosis. Sports & Exercise medicine is a new speciality, and steps on the toes of Orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists, cardiologist’s and respiratory physicians and rheumatologists but offers an opportunity to create a basis for an integrated approach between all specialities, focussed on accurate diagnosis and prescription of treatment.

My approach.

Fewer than 10% of our patients with joint, muscle or limb pain actually require surgery. Sports and Exercise Medicine physicians diagnose and treat  every muscle, joint and limb injury in  the body and are skilled in ultrasound imaging guided injections, exercise prescription and general medicine .

Our role also makes a diagnosis in fatigue, breathlessness, stress, cardiac arrythmias, underperformance  and metabolic medicine and of course exercise prescription.

There is often a reluctance to embrace technology in medicine, due to the perception of high costs. Our practice aims to reduce the costs to the patient by initially focussing on the underpinning anatomical diagnosis and then using the very latest technoogy and data science using VICON 3D biomechanics ( the same as PIXAR and Hollywood use) to digitise our patients in SSCLab and take a “movement mri” allowing us to reduce time and expense in rehabilitation.

My approach.

In combination with SSCLab, we readily use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to  provide detail to support our understanding of your anatomical diagnosis.

We will discuss this results with you and interpret your images in context of clinical examination and history. Our patients routinely the are assessed for strength, power and mechanics in our SSCLab by targeting the blocks of kinetics and kinematics – mathematical values of movement, we have almost halved rehabilitation time in athletic groin pain and reduced re-injury post ACL reconstruction to under 2%.

My approach.

We are continuously embracing health to improve outcomes and the metabolic blocks of glycaemic control, muscle peptides and nutrition, body composition and physical fitness are all the focus of new targets in our approach.

Our approach reduces the number of consultation or appointments you need and gives the control of intervention to you the patient or athletes. We want to see you less..in the nicest possible way…
