Dr Peter Lewis
M.B., B.S., Dip Sports Med
Sports Physician

Internationally recognised sports doctor, Dr. Peter Lewis, who is an expert in weight management and combat sports has joined the team at Altitude Services.

Dr Peter Lewis has been an Australian registered medical practitioner since 1983. In 1988, he completed a post-graduate diploma in Sports Medicine. He is considered an expert in the field of sports medicine, including platelet rich plasma (PRP), a regenerative medicine treatment utilising the patient’s own blood.

In his medical practice he has advocated lifestyle modification ahead of medication and believes in empowering patients to heal themselves in preference to developing dependency on drugs.

Dr Lewis has a developed significant physical skills and manual dexterity through his martial arts training and teaching over 37 years and has attained the recognition of 4th Dan. He is head instructor at the Malvern Martial Arts Centre.

In 1985, Dr Lewis established the ReCreation Medical Centre general practice clinic, which he still owns and manages today. Currently, it comprises of 9 doctors and several allied health practitioners in the fields of psychology, massage therapy, exercise physiology, dietetics, podiatry, and optometry. He is the current chairman of the Australasian Ringside Medical Association and the presiding doctor for most boxing and kickboxing fights in Victoria.

Dr Lewis regularly attends and presents at international medical conferences on sports and martial arts injuries. He has also written many articles on this topic, including a chapter on the assessment of concussion in the World Boxing Council (WBC) book on boxing injuries.

Dr Lewis is the CEO of the educational centre, The Malvern Institute, 6th Floor, 460 Bourke St, Melbourne.

Altitude Services Pty. Ltd. is utilizing Dr. Lewis’s expertise in combat sports to refine the application of this technology to this athletic market group – including the installation of a 6m X 6m training ring at Dr. Lewis’s Malvern training facility.

Additionally, Dr. Lewis runs a successful weight management practice. Recent peer reviewed, scientific research by Lippl et al illustrated an increase in concentration of the “hunger hormone” –  Leptin – which suppresses hunger, during mountain altitude exposure. Dr. Lewis and the team at Altitude Services Pty. Ltd. are working together to quantify the impact of the “sleep high, train low” altitude philosophy (via altitude simulation) on hunger suppression and weight management in overweight patients – a world first.
