Dr Ben Williams is a Darwin Orthopaedic Surgeon with interests in knee, hip and upper limb surgery as well as orthopaedic trauma and sports injuries.
Dr Williams worked in both Royal Darwin Hospital and Alice Springs Hospital during his training and recognised the Territory as a fantastic place to live. He and his family were excited to move to Darwin full time to live and work. He is an enthusiastic (but not overtly fast!) runner and is an instrument rated aeroplane Pilot with a genuine passion for aviation.
Dr Williams completed medical training at the University of Adelaide in 2004 and completed Orthopaedic Training in South Australia and the Northern territory from 2013 to 2017. Prior to commencing surgical training, he completed Basic Physician Training and passed the Physician’s exam in 2008. Whilst enjoying the work as a physician trainee he was drawn to Orthopaedic surgery after seeing many positive outcomes for patients and their family. During his training Dr Williams was fortunate to be mentored in a wide range of orthopaedic procedures by internationally recognised surgeons and has worked in a number of major trauma centres. Dr Williams is trained in advanced techniques such as arthroscopic (‘key hole’) surgery and modern approaches to pain relief that improve post operative recovery.
Dr Williams understands the importance of clear communication with patients and their family as well as other doctors and the allied health team. He is keen to help patients with their orthopaedic condition and looks forward to being active in the Darwin and Territory community.Qualifications:
