Assoc. Prof. Price Gallie
Dr Price Gallie is a Gold Coast local. After completing his schooling at The Southport School, he attended the University of Queensland and completed a Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery degree in 1995. After Advanced Orthopaedic Training in Queensland, he obtained Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) in 2004.
Dr Gallie then traveled internationally to gain post-graduate fellowship experience in surgery of the knee and hip. Initially in the United Kingdom, he completed a Clinical Fellowship in Knee Surgery under the guidance of Tim Spalding at the UHCW, University of Warwick. Extensive experience was gained in all aspects of knee surgery including arthroscopy, complex ligament reconstruction, cartilage regeneration, and minimally invasive knee surgery.
Following this Dr Gallie moved to North America, and completed the prestigious Arthroplasty fellowship at St Michael’s Hospital, University of Toronto. This included both primary and revision Arthroplasty of the Hip and Knee. Dr Gallie gained experience in all facets of joint replacement including Computer Assisted Surgery, Hip Resurfacing, and Minimally Invasive Techniques. He also became heavily involved in research, leading to publication of a number of articles in international peer reviewed journals.
Since his return to Australia in 2006, Dr Gallie has practised on the Gold Coast, and continues to practise in the public and private sectors. Dr Gallie founded ‘Coastorthopaedics’, an innovative subspecialty orthopaedic practice, dedicated to the provision of world class orthopaedic surgery with care and compassion.
Dr Gallie’s private practice is dedicated to surgery of the knee and hip including
- Sports knee surgery and arthroscopy
- Knee ligament reconstruction, including ACL, PCL and complex ligament injuries
- Management of early arthritis including realignment osteotomy and cartilage transplant
- Hip and Knee replacement
- MAKO Robot assisted joint replacement surgery
- Primary and revision surgery
- Hip resurfacing replacement
- Certified Independent Medical Examiner and GEPI qualified
Dr Gallie treats many athletes, both elite and semi-professional, including players from the Gold Coast Titans NRL, and Gold Coast Suns AFL teams, as well as current and previous Olympians. He has links to many local clubs and enjoys the challenge of treating and caring for athletes.
Dr Gallie has recently strengthened his ties with Griffith University and as an Associate Professor is actively involved in education and research. He teaches medical students from both Griffith and Bond University Medical Schools, and well as registrars on the AOA training program. He serves on the AOA state training committee. He has ongoing research interests, with a particular interest in knee replacement and ACL reconstruction, and has presented at national and international conferences.
Outside of work Dr Gallie’s interests lie with his family, and he is the proud father of four young boys. In the little spare time remaining he enjoys rugby, surfing, golf, and running.
