The Orthopaedic Surgery Institute, formally known as the Hip and Knee Centre was established in 2004 by Mr Ian Skinner.
Mr Ian Skinner completed his undergraduate and postgraduate medical training in WA (with some time as a student in Boston and Edinburgh). After completing training in orthopaedic surgery, he spent the next 6 years in Kalgoorlie where he looked after the orthopaedic needs of 68,000 people. He elected the return to Perth to continue his practice in 2004.
We are now joined by Mr Robert Petanceski operate as the Orthopaedic Surgery Institute of Western Australia. We have two locations, primarily based at Murdoch Hospital Medical Clinic we also consult at Sportreat, a sports medicine practice in Palmyra.
We are dedicated to providing the best and most appropriate care to each and every patient.
To maintain this level of excellence we encourage patient education at each visit and our fabulous team of Orthopaedic Surgeon’s partake in continuing education each year.
