Dr Fraser Taylor

Orthopaedic Upper Limb Surgeon, Specialising in disorders of the Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand

I would like to introduce myself as a new Orthopaedic Surgeon and will commence working in Private Practice at John Flynn Private Hospital from 1st July 2014. I will be combining this role with a staff specialist role as Orthopaedic and Upper limb Surgeon at Gold Coast University and Robina Public Hospitals.

I graduated from the University of Otago, New Zealand with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree in 2000 and have completed Orthopaedic training in New Zealand, being awarded Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2010. Following this I completed a further year of post-fellowship training in Hand and Upper Limb Surgery in the Princess Alexandra Hospital and Brisbane Hand and Upper Limb Research Centre. I have also a been visiting shoulder fellow in Cremona, Italy before completing a further year of hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder fellowship training in the Wrightington Hospital Upper Limb Unit in the UK.

I have published a number of papers in the fields of orthopaedic and upper limb surgery collaborating with a number of well-known international experts and have won research prizes for these projects during my training and fellowships. I continue to be involved in the training of junior doctors and medical students at Gold Coast University and Robina Hospitals. I travel frequently to international conferences and clinical visits to continuously update my skills and improve patient care.

I will welcome referrals regarding all upper limb orthopaedic problems and provide both open and arthroscopic options for treatment of the shoulder, elbow and wrist and hand.
