About Mr David Brougham
I graduated FRACS (Orth) in 1986. I then spent 9 months working at The Royal Childrens Hospital in Melbourne followed by 15 months at The Nuffield Hospital in Oxford. I commenced a mixed Public / Private practice in Palmerston North in 1989. The nature of Orthopaedic practice in Palmerston North is a general one covering most aspects of Orthopaedics.. Within this, I have a subspecialist interest in Paediatric Orthopaedics (Orthopaedics of Childhood). In addition I have a keen interest in Knee surgery ; Shoulder surgery ; Foot and Ankle surgery and Joint Replacement surgery.
I am proud of the Orthopaedic service we provide to the people of the Manawatu and Central NZ. One of my goals is to maintain and enhance that by introducing new young Orthopaedic surgeons to our group as public hospital resources allow.
