Dr Chien-Wen Liew is a subspecialist orthopaedic surgeon with a passion for minimally invasive surgery of the hip, knee and shoulder.
After completing his training in South Australia he trained internationally in the technique of direct anterior approach for total hip replacement surgery. This innovative technique minimises soft tissue damage by avoiding the need for muscle detachment.
He has trained extensively in France, Switzerland, UK, Austria and the USA working with leaders in this field of hip surgery. In Australia he trains other surgeons in this approach.
In addition, Dr Liew utilises 3D modelling and patient specific technology for total knee replacements. This technique enables accurate and custom joint alignment to be determined prior to surgery.
He frequently treats elite athletes’ hip, knee and shoulder conditions where he strongly advocates arthroscopic techniques. This provides safe and effective management of sports injuries with the goal of returning athletes to their pre-injury performance.
Dr Liew has consulting rooms at Burnside Hospital and also consults in the Barossa Valley and at Morphett Vale. Patients can usually be assessed within 1 week if requested in the referral and he warmly welcomes any correspondence that may improve patient care.
