Mr Peter Lewis
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MB BCh, FRCS (Orth)
I qualified from Cardiff in 1999 and, after completing my initial surgical training in South Wales, I went on to further my training in the West Midlands. Based at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, one of only five purely orthopaedic hospitals in the country, I spent time with the internationally recognised joint replacement and orthopaedic oncology teams, mastering simple to highly complex lower limb joint reconstruction procedures. Further experience was gained at the major trauma unit in Selly Oak and in 2007 I was appointed as honorary clinical lecturer to the University of Birmingham.
In 2008 I travelled to Toronto, Canada, to complete a year’s specialist fellowship in complex hip and knee replacement surgery working with pioneers in the specialty at St. Michael’s Hospital and the University of Toronto.
I returned to the UK in 2009 and in August took up the post of consultant trauma and orthopaedic surgeon to Cwm Taf Local Health Board, working at both Prince Charles and Royal Glamorgan Hospitals.
I have given over 40 international presentations, presenting at orthopaedic meetings around the world from Seoul to Hawaii to Sydney.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Peter Lewis at Spire include:
I have been involved in all aspects of orthopaedic research and have published numerous articles and a book chapter on both the basic science and clinical outcomes of joint replacement surgery.

Despite a love for travel and a passion to learn every aspect of orthopaedic surgery (from specialist units in both the UK and around the world), ultimately returning to my home of Wales was always my goal. I have always been a keen sports fan so I can now enjoy the international rugby tests at the Millennium Stadium, although time in North America has broadened my sporting horizons and I am now also an avid Toronto Blue Jays baseball fan.
