Dr Peter Scougall

FRACS (ORTH) FA ORTH. A

Dr Peter Scougall is a Hand and Wrist Surgeon, with over 25 years in private practice. He specialises in the surgical treatment of traumatic and elective hand and wrist conditions, including sports injuries, fractures, dislocations, Dupuytren’s contracture, tumours, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, ganglions and tendon and nerve conditions.

Philosophy of care statement:
“I enjoy the variety and technical challenge of hand surgery. Most of all though, I enjoy connecting with the people I meet and treat. We all value our hands, regardless of age, occupation, interests and hobbies. The greatest challenge for me, and the most rewarding aspect of my work, is tailoring treatment to suit lifestyle. Planning treatment to maximise functional recovery, and hopefully minimise the inconvenience of the treatment. I feel fortunate to have such an interesting job.”
