Travis Falconer

2014 Fellow

BIO

Travis completed his fellowship training in Perth in January 2014. He then spent the next six months in Perth as a locum consultant at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital for Children. During this period he also completed a locum / fellowship with Dr Peter Hales in upper limb surgery.

Following this, Travis moved to Sydney for 12 months where he completed a fellowship under the supervision of Professor David Sonnabend, Dr Jeff Hughes, Dr Ben Cass and Dr Allan Young.

During this time he gained a wide exposure to shoulder and elbow problems in both the elective and trauma setting. He was also actively involved in the Sydney Shoulder Research Institute with projects focusing on shoulder infection, augmentation devices for the rotator cuff and coronoid fractures. While at the SSRI he also co-authored a book chapter on elbow arthroplasty for trauma with Dr Hughes and another previous SSRI fellow Dr Geoff Smith.

Since his time in Sydney Travis has also completed fellowships in upper limb surgery with Dr Jakub Langer at the Shriners’ Hospital for Children in Portland, Oregon and in shoulder surgery at Mt Sinai Hospital, New York City with Dr Evan Flatow and Dr Bradford Parsons.

Travis has returned to Perth to work in both the public and private sectors, at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, Osbourne Park Hospital, Peel Health Campus, Perth Children’s Hospital and Perth Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Centre specialising in shoulder and elbow surgery and trauma surgery.

Fellowship Story

After my fellowship with Dr Hales, I moved to Sydney for 12 months where I completed a fellowship under the supervision of Prof David Sonnabend, Dr Jeff Hughes, Dr Ben Cass and Dr Allan Young.

During this time I gained a wide exposure to shoulder and elbow problems in both the elective and trauma setting. I was also actively involved with Sydney Shoulder Research Institute, my projects focusing on shoulder infection, augmentation devices for the rotator cuff and coronoid fractures. While at SSRI I also co-authored a book chapter on elbow arthroplasty for trauma with Dr Hughes and another previous SSRI fellow Dr Geoff Smith.
