Personal profile

Biography

Dr Sumit Raniga is a subspecialist orthopaedic shoulder and elbow surgeon scientist who has recently joined MQ Health on a full-time basis after completing three years of dedicated clinical and research fellowships in world-renowned centres of excellence in shoulder and elbow surgery. He is the first fellow of the Royal Australian College of Surgeon’s to complete a one-year fellowship at the world-famous Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, at the Bern University Hospital in Switzerland, where he was awarded the prestigious Charles S. Neer Award in 2016 by the American Shoulder and Elbow Society for his contribution to shoulder research. This is the highest honour in shoulder and elbow surgery research in the world. During his time in Bern, he was mentored by Professor Matthias Zumstein, who is widely regarded as one of the best shoulder and elbow surgeons in Europe. He had the privilege to receive intensive training in arthroscopic and open reconstruction of the shoulder and elbow, as well as joint replacement surgery. 

 

The Roth MacFarlane Hand and Upper Limb Center (HULC) is a world-renowned centre of excellence in education, research, and the treatment of patients with complex conditions affecting hands, wrists, elbows and shoulders. Dr Raniga had the privilege to work with Professor Graham King, who is regarded as one of the preeminent elbow surgeons in the world. His time with Professor King allowed him to focus on open and arthroscopic reconstruction of the elbow, as well as elbow replacement surgery. He also worked with Professor George Athwal, who has earned the reputation of being one of the best shoulder surgeons in North America. Dr Raniga focussed on learning novel joint preserving surgery for the treatment of high demand patients with unrepairable rotator cuff tears. He also gained further experience in arthroscopic and open surgery, as well as more complex shoulder replacement surgery. 

 

With a background in molecular medicine as well as biomechanical research, Dr Raniga joined MQ Health with a vision to develop a world-class orthopaedic research program that focuses on basic scientific research that improves prosthesis design, surgical techniques and rehabilitation to improve patient outcomes. To this end, Dr Raniga's MQ Health Translational Shoulder Program has recently been awarded a research grant of $600,000 to build Asia-Pacific’s first six degree of freedom, eight muscle actuated, cadaveric shoulder simulator. 

 

Dr Raniga provides the highest standard of evidence-based management and surgical treatment of complex shoulder and elbow problems with a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach. He specialises in shoulder & elbow reconstruction, arthroscopy and arthroplasty. Dr Raniga is an excellent communicator with world-class training that allows him to provide the latest evidence-based care with a patient centred approach. He works with Assoc. Professor Des Bokor in the MQ Health Complex Shoulder Clinic and is responsible for the MQ Health Shoulder & Elbow Clinic
