Get to know Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Paul C. Peters Jr., who serves patients in Dallas, Texas.
Dr. Peters Jr. is a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon who serves as the owner and operator of the W.B. Carrell Clinic in Dallas, Texas. Since 1992, he has performed hundreds of reconstructive hip and knee surgeries each year in Dallas, with patients traveling from many places in the USA and throughout Texas to seek his services.
An advocate of alternate bearing surfaces with associated minimal wear for the active patient with a hip or knee replacement, it is his goal to restore the normal activity level of both the young and old patient receiving a joint replacement.
To date, he maintains staff privileges at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, North Central Surgical Center, and Scottish Rite Crippled Children’s Hospital.
A native of Dallas, Dr. Peters Jr. graduated from Highland Park High School in 1976. He attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude and was nominated to Phi Beta Kappa. A graduate of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas, where he was nominated to Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society, Dr. Peters received the Hudson Penn Award for Outstanding Performance in Clinical Surgery.
Following medical school, he completed an internship in general surgery at Parkland Memorial Hospital and a residency in orthopaedic surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas. He was then awarded a fellowship in reconstructive hip and knee surgery at the Anderson Clinic in Arlington, Virginia, under the supervision of Drs. Charles and Gerard Engh.
A member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, the doctor is board-certified in orthopaedic surgery by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, which is an organization with the goal of establishing educational and professional standards for orthopaedic residents and surgeons, as well as evaluating the qualifications and competence of orthopaedic surgeons.
The author of numerous scientific papers, Dr. Peters Jr. frequently lectures to medical audiences on reconstructive hip and knee surgery with special emphasis on the host response to implanted materials, prevention of thromboembolism following joint replacement surgery, and less invasive surgical techniques for joint replacement.
Orthopaedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. They work in clinical and hospital settings.
