Jit Balakumar is a highly trained orthopaedic surgeon with a expertise in lower limb surgery, namely, joint preservation surgeries of the hip (hip arthroscopy, osteotomies and impingement surgery) and joint replacement.

After he completed a fellowship at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Mr Balakumar completed a diploma and fellowship of Knee Surgery in Paris V University in Paris, France.

In 2008 he was recognized for his talents and was accepted into the very competitive and highly sought after paediatric surgery fellowship at Harvard’'s Children’s Hospital Boston. This is an American-accredited fellowship program which rarely grants acceptance to foreign-trained surgeons. There, Mr Balakumar completed a full-year of hands-on surgical training with some of the brightest minds and hands in orthopaedics. He honed his skills with emerging techniques in joint preservation surgeries across the paediatric, adolescent and adult populations.

His unique understanding of orthopaedics across all age groups makes Mr Balakumar versatile in treating these conditions being able to offer both joint preservation and replacement options. He has a number of publications in peer review orthopaedic literature and continues to present at international orthopaedic meetings. Mr Balakumar also teaches orthopaedic surgeons, trainees and medical students.
