Andrea Spiker, MD


Andrea Spiker, MD, is a UW Health orthopedic surgeon and an assistant professor in the Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. She specializes in hip preservation treatment and sports medicine. Dr. Spiker is a team physician for UW Badger Athletics and provides head orthopedic coverage for the UW men’s and women’s basketball teams. She is also the Program Director of the UW Orthopedic Surgery Sports Medicine Fellowship Program.

Dr. Spiker developed the hip preservation program at UW Health to help a broad-range of patients maintain normal hip function. She cares for patients who have athletic injuries of the hip or knee and hip pain or injuries from tears, restricted movement, abnormal growth or dislocation. For hip and knee sports injuries, she performs ACL reconstruction and minimally invasive surgery, and repairs torn knee cartilage and provides guidance on both surgical and non-surgical injury management. Dr. Spiker understands that for certain patients, surgery might not be the right answer. She explains the available treatment options that can improve their daily activity or sports functioning and reduce pain. She uses non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures to help relieve pain and improve range of motion.

She has authored numerous textbook chapters, review articles, and peer-reviewed studies and has given local, regional, and national talks and presentations in the areas of sports medicine and hip preservation. She is an active member in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA), International Hip Preservation Society (ISHA), Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Honor Medical Society, American Orthopaedic Association (AOA) Emerging Leaders Forum, Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society (RJOS) and the Forum.

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Spiker enjoys running and spending time with her family and three young children.

The most rewarding part of my job is when a patient comes back to the clinic and tells me their surgery has completely changed their life for the better.
