International Experience

Coastal Orthopeadics

Peter spent more than two years undertaking international sub-specialty training before returning to Western Australia. He was the first surgeon from Perth to be selected for the prestigious Knee Fellowship at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Fortius Clinic in London under the tutelage of internationally renowned knee surgeon Andy Williams. He remained in London working alongside highly regarded surgeon Andrew Wallace, developing further skills in the management of complex shoulder problems, particularly in athletes.

A significant portion of patients treated during his time in England were elite sports-people. However the nature of these practices involved complex referrals from not only other doctors but other surgeons. This provided a broad experience treating large numbers of patients of all ages and levels of function, with an ultimate focus of achieving individual goals and restoring quality of life.

Peter’s family then moved to North America where Peter spent 12 months working at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, focusing on Hip Arthroscopy and Joint Reconstruction. This extensive training has allowed Peter to return to Perth as one of the few fellowship trained Hip Arthroscopy Surgeons in Western Australia.

During his time abroad Peter took the opportunity to undertake multiple surgical training courses and visit a number of renowned surgeons across Europe and the USA to further develop his skills. This experience has assisted him in providing his patients with the most cutting edge surgical techniques available worldwide.
