Dr Peter McEwen Dr Peter McEwen

I was educated at Marist College Ashgrove in Brisbane and the University of Queensland. I completed advanced orthopaedic training in 1999 and have been in full-time clinical practice in Townsville since 2001. I have undergone post fellowship subspecialty training and dedicate myself almost exclusively to surgery of the knee.

Sports Surgery

I have a particular interest in surgery for sporting injuries of the knee. My post fellowship training and ongoing involvement with the ICRS and ISAKOS reflects this interest. I am team surgeon for the Townsville Crocodiles NBL team and work with the Townsville Fire WNBL Team.

Medical Education and Research

I am actively involved in medical education at all levels from lecturing medical students at James Cook University to mentoring advanced orthopaedic surgical trainees at The Townsville Hospital.
