Andrew Wright, M.D. is director of UW Medicine's Hernia Center at Northwest Hospital and part of UW Hospital's Center for Esophageal and Gastric Surgery.  He is also fellowship director of the UW's Advanced Gastrointestinal Surgery Fellowship and an assistant program director for the General Surgery Residency.

Dr. Wright trained at the University of Wisconsin.  His main clinical interest is in management of hernias. He also manages complex esophageal and gastric disease. 
Much of his non-clinical time is spent in the UW's Institute for Simulation and Interprofessional Studies, where he works on improving patient safety. He also works with the UW School of Engineering's Biorobotics Lab.
