Stuart A McCowan

MBChB, FRACS

Hip, Knee & Foot Surgeon



I am an Orthopaedic Surgeon with over 20 years experience in private and public hospital practice.

Having completed the New Zealand Orthopaedic Training Programme and two years of subspecialty training in Canada, I initially practiced general Orthopaedics but for the last 15 years have confined my practice to surgery of the lower limb.

I also have a commitment to the public hospital system with a consultant appointment at Auckland City Hospital, where I am involved with the management of trauma, particularly pelvic and acetabular injuries, and also elective surgery of the lower limb.

I remain closely involved with training of Orthopaedic surgeons, having been on the New Zealand Orthopaedic Education Committee which is responsible for the selection and training of Orthopaedic Surgeons in New Zealand.

I have also been an examiner in Orthopaedics for the Australasian College of Surgeons Fellowship Examination.
