During and after school, Dr Musgrove played representative rugby and throughout his medical studies worked as a professional lifeguard on Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte beaches.

Dr Musgrove worked in public hospitals since leaving school, initially as a hospital orderly, then as a physiotherapist and subsequently as an intern, resident, registrar, and visiting medical officer.

Dr Musgrove has published articles in the American Journal of Sports Medicine and has acted as convenor and presented at the Australian Orthopaedic Association Continuing Education Meetings.

While the focus academically and professionally has been Sports Orthopaedics, Dr Musgrove draws on all his medical experience to consider each consultation individually, both as physician and surgeon.

The privilege of working as an Orthopaedic Surgeon has allowed association with many elite athletes and sporting teams, but there is no greater outcome than returning the recreational or retired to their chosen sport, work, leisure or lifestyle pursuits.

Dr Musgrove is committed to education through his roles with the NSW Orthopaedic Association (NSW AOA), NSW Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (NSW RACS) and University of Notre Dame.

Dr Musgrove served as General Committee Member and Secretary of the NSW AOA for 8 years and in 2013 became its Chairman.

In 2016 Dr Musgrove was elected to the Board of the Australian Orthopaedic Association.

Dr Musgrove has also served as Orthopaedic Representative to the NSW RACS since 2008 and was elected to the executive of that committee in 2010.

Dr Musgrove is presently involved in implementing a national mentor/ mentee programme for Australian orthopaedic surgeons on behalf of the Association.

Dr Musgrove acts as an inspector reaccrediting hospital posts for orthopaedic training.

Dr Musgrove volunteered as a Medical Officer during both the Sydney 2000 Olympics and the 2003 Rugby World Cup.

Dr Musgrove is currently an active Level 1 Rugby Referee and Referee coach.

Dr Musgrove commenced medical studies, with a particular focus on sports trauma, with the completion of a Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Physiotherapy at the Cumberland College of Health Sciences in 1983.

As the specialty of Sports Medicine was evolving in the 1980s, Dr Musgrove worked as a Sports Physiotherapist in private practice. The decision to commence further studies at Sydney University in 1985 to obtain a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery Degree was complementary to the experience gained as a Physiotherapist.

Graduating with honours in 1990, Dr Musgrove completed intern and resident placements through the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (Sydney) and was accepted as an Orthopaedic Surgical Trainee in 1994.

By 1997 Dr Musgrove obtained Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) in Orthopaedic Surgery.

Further subspecialisation was commenced in 1998 by completing Fellowships under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Leo Pinczewski and Dr Kim Slater at the North Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre (NSOSMC) during 1998/1999, which progressed to becoming a partner in that practice in 2000.

Dr Musgrove established practice at NSOSMC in Crows Nest and peripheral consultations at South Sydney Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre (SSOSMC/Kensington) and Physical Therapy (Wollongong).

An opportunity to establish practice at the Sydney Football (Allianz) Stadium (Stadium Orthopaedics) in 2008 resulted in relocation to Moore Park with continued affiliations with NSOSMC. The Stadium practice has now moved to Byron Kennedy Hall in the Entertainment Quarter.

Likewise further evolution of practice in 2013 resulted in merging the interests and experience of practice at NSOSMC, SSOSMC and Stadium Orthopaedics into the concept of 1ORTHO to continue to provide a unique sports orthopaedic service based on the individual and unique expertise of Dr Musgrove.
