Dr Damian Smith
Passionate about helping people achieve life changing results through integrated orthopaedic care, Dr Damian Smith is a highly trained orthopaedic surgeon with expertise in lower limb surgery. He’s also one of Australia’s Orthopaedic surgeons that has embraced advances in robotic surgery and was the first doctor to perform a hip replacement in Canberra using the world-leading Mako robotic-arm surgical support system.
After successfully completing his Orthopaedic training in 2008 at the University of Sydney, he went on to complete post graduate fellowships in orthopaedic surgery. This saw him train overseas in the United Kingdom in internationally recognised fellowships in hip and knee joint replacement surgery, arthroscopic knee surgery and paediatric orthopaedics.
As well as being a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons and member of the Australian Medical Association and Australian Orthopaedic Association, Dr Smith is trauma trained and regularly works the on call roster covering orthopaedic trauma and fracture management at The Canberra Hospital. He is committed to maintaining a high standard of care and ongoing professional development through the training and mentoring of up and coming medical students and surgical trainees.
