Dr Benny Zhang
Dr Benny Zhang is an Australian trained Orthopaedic Specialist obtaining FRACS and FAOrthA qualification in 2020. He commenced his residency at St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne and was successful in gaining entry into the Victorian/Tasmanian Orthopaedic Training Programme administered by the Australian Orthopaedic Association in 2015. During his training, Dr Zhang published many original and review articles in national and international peer-reviewed journals.
Following completion of training, he pursued further skills in Pelvic and Arthroplasty surgery at The Royal Melbourne Hospital. The fellowship standard work included assessment, planning and management of complex pelvic trauma and revision arthroplasty at a Victorian Tertiary referral centre. Additionally, Benny is a senior lecturer at the The University of Melbourne, providing medical students with Orthopaedic lectures and tutorials. He is also an active participant in the VIC/TAS training bone school programme.
His current appointments include Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at The Royal Melbourne Hospital and Echuca Regional Hospital. This serves a balancing act in staying in touch with grass roots Australia as much of his training has been in a regional setting.

He is based at Mount Buller during the Australian alpine season and regularly travels to Japan and North America.
