Dr Mahendra Meta is a Queensland-trained orthopaedic surgeon specialised in Adult Hip & Knee Replacement Surgery and Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgery, with more than 20 years of international experience in the field of orthopaedic surgery. Having had a very broad exposure to a wide variety of cases, he exhibits the wisdom of experience.
Dr Meta is one of very few orthopaedic surgeons in Brisbane with sub-specialty training fellowships in Adult Hip & Knee as well as Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgery (undertaken in Australia, New Zealand and India). His unique understanding of hip and knee problems across all age groups makes him versatile in treating these conditions.
Dr Meta’s main focus is on Hip & Knee Replacement Surgery using ERAS (Enhanced Recovery after Surgery) Program. He incorporates latest technical & technological advances in joint replacement surgery including pre-operative digital templating, computer navigation, “Verasense” sensor assisted surgery and patient-specific instrumentation. This is with the aim to improve accuracy, longevity of joint replacement, patient satisfaction and outcomes.
His international tertiary care institute experience in performing complex joint replacements in very advanced hip and knee arthritis problems combined with Australian experience of using advanced evidence-based techniques & technologies provides best of both worlds to his patients needing hip or knee replacement.
Dr Meta also has a particular interest in arthroscopic (minimally invasive) knee surgery for sports injuries including “Single Tendon” ACL reconstruction.
Dr Meta also treats various lower limb conditions in children & adolescents (including deformity correction using osteotomies or guided growth, limb lengthening and reconstruction).
He enjoys his work as a Specialist Hip & Knee surgeon and a Deputy Director at QE II Jubilee Hospital, and Specialist Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon at Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. During his orthopaedic career in Queensland Dr Meta has worked at various facilities including Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital, Royal Children Hospital, Princess Alexandra Hospital, The Prince Charles Hospital, Ipswich Hospital, Townsville Hospital & Rockhampton Base hospital.
Dr Meta is affiliated to UQ (University of Queensland) and involved in the training & education of orthopaedic trainees, junior doctors and medical students.
Dr Meta is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in orthopaedics, a member of AOA (Australian Orthopaedic Association) and AAOS (American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons).
Dr Meta can be contacted on his mobile phone to assist with advice on general patient care or to discuss individual cases.
Dr Meta is currently able to accommodate appointments within a week of receiving a referral.
His practice is based on four strong pillars - experience, precision, passion and most importantly, compassion. He strongly believes that “a good surgeon lives within a good human being”. As a surgeon, he has always been thorough and careful in his clinical assessment, surgical planning and implementation.
