Dr Peter Friis has been a Sports Medicine practitioner since the mid 1980's.


Sports Medicine involves the holistic health care of the active individual. Consultations often involve medical issues and how sport may be affected by this or how exercise can be used as a therapy for that condition.


Beyond this very broad description, Dr Friis also does SCUBA Medicals for recreational divers, CAMS medicals, and pre-participation medicals for those ready to embark on exercise again after a lay off period.


He has a great understanding of the health and wellbeing of young adolescents after being the medical officer for Brisbane Boys Grammar School for 20 years, and from his personal experiences in sport he is well aware of the medical problems associated with both training and competing.

BOSMC - Brisbane Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Clinic

Dr Friis has worked at the Brisbane Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre (BOSMC) as a Sports Physician since the clinic was founded in 1989, and this brings some clear benefits to you.


The clinic relocated to its present position at the Brisbane Private Hospital in 1993. Being based in a tertiary referral hospital, BOSMC has access to state of the art radiology facilities, pathology and specialist opinions. In some cases patient have been seen, investigated, referred, admitted, and operated on without the need to leave the facility. The infrastructure of BOSMC and the intimate association with the hospital allows for fast tracking of urgent cases.


Clearly not every sport medicine problem will require hospitalization. However, x-rays can be undertaken on the same day as the consultation with Dr Friis. MRIs and CT scans can also be booked usually within 24 hours. Diagnosis, confirmation and a treatment plan can be undertaken as soon as possible to get you back to your sport.

An opportunity now also exists to book an afternoon/evening appointment with Dr Friis in the northern suburbs at Albany Creek. Available session times will suit appointments after school hours. Clinic address and contact details are shown below.
