Wayne Piers, D.O.

Wayne comes to MaineOrtho after 18 years as a solo practitioner under the banner of Maine Coast Orthopaedics in Portland. He earned a Harvard Medical School Fellowship and trained at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, leading to his specialization in complex primary and revision joint replacement of hips and knees. With Wayne’s training and experience, he has developed the medical art of adjusting the new joint to match the intricacies of each person’s musculoskeletal make-up for the best outcome.

An accomplished long distance runner, Wayne also takes special interest in running technique and injury. As a member of the Dirigo Running Club, he has had the opportunity both to treat and compete with Maine elite and recreational runners. He is also experienced in orthopaedic trauma, having trained at the AOTrauma Fellowship Program at Tampa General Hospital in Tampa, Florida.

In addition, Wayne has served as the Vice Chairman of the Southern Maine Orthopaedic Management Company, where he assists in overseeing orthopaedic operations at Mercy Hospital in Portland. Since 1995, he has served as a clinical professor at the University of New England, where he teaches the musculoskeletal curriculum, lectures monthly to residents and oversees both medical students and residents for office-based orthopaedic training within his practice.

Born and raised in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, Wayne completed his undergraduate studies at Boston College. He earned his medical degree from the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, then completed his internship and residency at Brighton Medical Center in Portland prior to his Fellowship training in Boston.
