Peter Maiers

Sports Medicine Specialist

Dr. Maiers is living his dream, which for him means practicing orthopedic sports medicine with a specialty in hip and knee injuries.

As a sports medicine physician, Dr. Maiers utilizes a team approach in the conservative treatment of patients to help athletes get back in the game. If necessary, Dr. Maiers prefers arthroscopic surgery to keep the procedure as minimally invasive as possible with faster recovery times. He utilizes the same methods and techniques developed for athletes to treat those who are injured at home, at play, or in the workplace.

After concluding his residency in orthopedic surgery at Indiana University, Dr. Maiers embarked on two subspecialty fellowships, the first under the direction of Dr. Frank Noyes in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he focused on complex knee injuries and joint preservation. He completed his second fellowship under the tutelage of Dr. Thomas Byrd in Nashville, where Dr. Maiers devoted his time to arthroscopic hip surgery, including treatment of Femoroacetabular impingement as well as other athletic hip injuries.
Dr. Maiers serves as a team physician for the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana University Athletics. He is actively performing research on the arthroscopic treatment of hip impingement and arthroscopic ACL reconstruction. Dr. Maiers lectures nationally, teaching other orthopedic surgeons to perform some of the techniques he employs.

When he’s not working, Dr. Maiers and his wife enjoy spending time with their three sons. Some of their favorite family activities are sailing, golf and snow skiing.
