Paul C. Peters, Jr., MD, a native of Dallas, graduated from Highland Park High School in 1976. He attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude and was nominated to Phi Beta Kappa. A graduate of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas, where he was nominated to Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society, Dr. Peters received the Hudson Penn Award for outstanding performance in clinical surgery. Following medical school, he completed a general surgery internship at Parkland Memorial Hospital and a residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas. He was then awarded a fellowship in reconstructive hip and knee surgery at the Anderson Clinic in Arlington, Virginia, under the supervision of Drs. Charles and Gerard Engh.
Dr. Peters joined the W. B. Carrell Memorial Clinic in 1992 with a primary focus in reconstructive hip and knee surgery. The author of numerous scientific papers, he frequently lectures to medical audiences on reconstructive hip and knee surgery with special emphasis on the host response to implanted materials, prevention of thromboembolism following joint replacement surgery, new techniques relating to computer-assisted surgery as well as less invasive surgical techniques for joint replacement. Dr. Peters is an advocate of alternate bearing surfaces with associated minimal wear for the active patient with a hip or knee replacement. With these new techniques and better materials, Dr. Peters’ goal is to restore the normal activity level of both the young and old patient receiving a joint replacement.
He is an associate clinical instructor in orthopedics at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, and he maintains staff privileges at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas and Scottish Rite Crippled Children’s Hospital.
Married with two daughters and a son, Dr. Peters enjoys hunting, fishing, basketball, and collecting antique books and American furniture.
