Dr Peter Hewitt

Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dr Hewitt MBBS FRACS is one of the most thorough orthopaedic expert witnesses working in Australia today. His reports on DRE1 spinal injuries (“whiplash”), for example, paint a vivid picture of how such injuries impact a claimant’s day-to-day life.

In his clinical practice, Dr Hewitt is currently Visiting Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Greenslopes Private Hospital and at the Mater Redlands Private Hospital, as well as Clinical Assessor for the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons’ Queensland Audit of Surgical Mortality (QASM).

He is a general orthopaedist, with extensive experience in managing trauma and shoulder surgery, and his particular clinical interests include surgery to the hip and knee and computer navigation in surgery.

Dr Hewitt has undergone training in AMA 4 and AMA 5, as well as GEPI1 & GEPI2. He is a past Tribunalist on the Workers’ Compensation Regulator’s Medical Assessment Tribunal (QLD).

Outside of work, Dr Hewitt loves fishing and sailing.
