Orthopaedic Surgery

Mr Dugal James: Orthopaedic Surgeon: Specialising in Hip & Knee Surgery

Mr Dugal James MBBS FRACS (Orth) is a specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon in Bendigo, Central Victoria.

Dugal James graduated from Melbourne University (MBBS) and did his primary surgical training at the Repatriation Hospital, Melbourne.  He completed his Orthopaedic Specialist Training (FRACS) with the Australian Orthopaedic Association in 1990 and then undertook further subspecialty Fellowships in lower limb surgery.

Post Graduate Training included Fellowships in knee and sports surgery, lower limb joint replacements and hip replacements.

Mr James undertook a Fellowship with Neil Thompson in Sydney;  one of Australia’s pioneers of knee arthroscopy.  This was followed by a lower limb joint replacement Fellowship at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard University Boston, USA, under the tutorage of Dick Scott, Tom Thornhill and Fred Ewald. His third placement was a Hip Replacement Fellowship under the mentorship of Robin Ling and the Exeter Group in Exeter, England.

Ongoing Research and Design

Mr James commenced practice in Bendigo but continued to maintain a close association with his US and British colleagues collaborating on research and design projects.  His principal area of interest has been the design of total knee joint prostheses and the specific instrumentation used to introduce them. This interest has seen his practice focus on knee joint arthroscopy, reconstruction and joint replacement surgery of the knee and hip.

An area of interest is the performance of knee arthroscopy under Local rather than General Anaesthesia. He has also developed and refined a method of hamstring ACL reconstruction that obviates the need for metallic fixation devices.

He is actively involved with supervision of local Orthopaedic trainees and travels regularly to present at educational forums in South East Asia.

His outside interests extend to his family and friends in Bendigo and he has been known to steal away for an occasional hour or two on a motorcycle.

Mr Glenn Boyce: Specialising in Hip, Knee, Elbow & Shoulder Surgery

Glenn is a Fellowship trained Orthopaedic Surgeon with the Royal Australian College of Surgeons.  He subsequently completed subspecialty Fellowships in the areas of upper limb, trauma and lower limb arthroplasty.

Glenn grew up in Gippsland, received his medical degree through Monash University Clayton in 2006 and completed initial surgical training in the Royal Melbourne Hospital.  He remained committed to rural practice, rotating for 3 to 6 months each year to a rural hospital and worked for Bendigo Health in 2010 prior to specialty training.

Glenn has a particular interest in the treatment of upper limb conditions and completed a 6 month subspecialty upper limb Fellowship with the Melbourne Orthopaedic Group and Austin Health.  Most recently, he completed a further Fellowship at the Balgrist Hospital in Zurich, a World leading upper limb institute.

In order to provide the latest surgical techniques, implant technology and arthroscopic management of both upper and lower limb conditions, he completed 6 months of subspecialty training in lower limb arthroplasty and trauma through the Geelong Hospital.

Glenn has a strong interest in research, working with the Balgrist Research Institute, Melbourne University Engineering Department, Melbourne Health and the Melbourne Orthopaedic Group Research Foundation.  He has been involved in teaching anatomy at Monash Clayton, as well as presenting national and international lecture series and being involved in live surgery demonstrations.

Glenn intends to become an active member of the local community and is accessible for advice and patient consults in teh areas of upper and lower limb.  Although particularly interested in shoulder, this includes elbow, hip and knee as well as general wrist, foot and ankle.

He treats public and private patients and spends 75% of his time working in the public system.  Please refer public patients to him at the Bendigo Base Hospital.  Patients with private health insurance, TAC or WorkCover as well as patients requesting medicolegal consultations can be referred to him at Bendigo Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine.
