Dr Terry Stephens completed his medical training through The University of Melbourne in 2006. His orthopaedic specialty training was completed in various hospitals in Victoria with attainment of The Fellowship of The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) in 2016. Terry worked at Peninsula Health – Frankston Hospital for 18 months providing general orthopaedic services. He then relocated to Canada for 2 years to obtain further specialty training in hip and knee replacement surgery and orthopaedic trauma.
2018/19 was spent in Halifax Nova Scotia specialising in hip and knee replacement surgery and more specifically revision surgery focusing on infection and the painful joint replacement. He then moved to Calgary in Alberta for a 12 month fellowship in orthopaedic trauma.
