His practice is situated in the heart of this seaside town.  Dr Peter Smith not only offers patients the full spectrum of professional orthopaedic treatments, but specialises in total knee replacement, total hip replacement, sports injuries and the latest arthroscopic surgery techniques and computer guided surgery. He gained extensive experience in the latest arthroplasty techniques during his stay of 6 years in Australia where he performed more than a hundred primary and revision hip and knee replacements cases in a year.

With the number of injuries sustained by patients through our very active South African lifestyle, as well as to athletes, sportsmen and women, Dr Peter Smith uses modern procedures and rehabilitation protocols to enhances their recovery. By using accelerated rehabilitation protocols, patients’ hospital stay are reduced and their recovery at home more tolerable. Patients are able to resume their active outdoor activities or sport within a few months.

Today, surgeries can be performed with a low invasive procedure and with the ideal fresh clean environment offered in Milnerton, Cape Town; post operative rehabilitation is further enhanced.
