Mr David Gill – Orthopaedic Surgeon
Mr David Gill

Orthopaedic Surgeon

I am a fellowship trained Orthopaedic Surgeon undertaking the management of all aspects of shoulder, elbow and wrist surgery. I perform all arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs and stabilisations as well as joint replacement to ‘best practice’ standards. The spectrum of conditions I manage include tendon tears, instability, arthritis, fractures deformity and stiffness.

After completing my general Orthopaedic Training I undertook sub-specialty training fellowships at the Bernard O’Brien Institute of Microsurgery in Melbourne and then travelled to the Mayo Clinic Rochester USA where I undertook a Fellowship in Upper Extremity followed by Hand Surgery Fellowship.

I am the author of peer reviewed published articles, in medical journals and Orthopaedic Text Book chapters, (please refer to my section on Publications, Research). I have, and continue to present my Research and papers at Orthopaedic meetings such the Australian Shoulder and Elbow Society and frequently travel as Invited Faculty lecturing and demonstrating Arthroscopic Shoulder Surgery.

My Patients will receive the highest standard of expertise and care and will be treated with respect and empathy my goal is to get you back to a normal active life as quickly as possible. You are a Person not a number.

I look forward to meeting you.
