Dr Doug Kingwell’s focus is to gain a thorough understanding of a patient’s orthopaedic condition and expectations, before providing clear explanations of the treatment options, both surgical and non surgical. All management decisions involve applying the best orthopaedic evidence, with an individualised approach.

Doug prides himself on employing the latest orthopaedic and rehabilitation techniques to obtain the best result possible. This is done in conjunction with allied health, sports medicine and imaging colleagues. Doug actively plays organised sports and can identify with those affected by injury whether they be professional athletes or those exercising for fitness and fun.

Dr Doug Kingwell was raised in Western Australia, growing up and completing secondary education in the wheatbelt town of Narrogin. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Western Australia, graduating in 2004. Intern and resident years were undertaken at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, before completing advanced orthopaedic training in 2019. In these years Doug also met his wife and has 3 energetic boys. He worked as a locum consultant in Perth, Albany and Armadale before leaving Western Australia for advanced fellowship training in reconstructive arthroscopy at the world-renowned University of British Columbia.

During his fellowship, Doug was involved with a high volume of cases involving hip, knee, shoulder and elbow arthroscopy as well as shoulder arthroplasty. He was involved in the treatment of national representatives in field hockey, basketball, American football and Olympian athletes.

Cutting edge joint preservation surgery was a focus of this fellowship and he’s eager to offer these techniques to his patients here in Perth. Dr Kingwell also offers primary arthroplasty for those patients with advanced arthritis.

Dr Kingwell has a public appointment at Royal Perth Hospital, undertaking both elective and trauma surgery. Private operating is performed at Hollywood Private Hospital and St John of God Mt Lawley.
