Dr. Andrew Myrtue joined NMC in 2020. He earned his medical degree from Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and performed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. He retired from the military after a 30-year career in the US Air Force, having worked most recently as a general orthopaedic surgeon in a small to medium-sized community hospital setting. His current practice focuses on joint replacement, arthroscopy and sports medicine, hand surgery, and the treatment of fractures.
Dr. Myrtue is passionate about the personal side of providing care to patients. “Despite new technology, new surgical techniques, breakthroughs in treatment, there will never be a substitute for the personal connection between provider and patient, and I will always make that a priority in my practice,” he said.
In his spare time, Dr. Myrtue spends time with his wife and two daughters. Now that his children have gotten older, he finds himself with more free time to enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding, playing ice hockey, and playing guitar.
