Mr Daniel Robin
Daniel is a Melbourne-trained Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who treats all elective and traumatic orthopaedic conditions. He has developed a lower-limb subspecialty interest, specifically in the treatment of sports-related and degenerative conditions of the hip and knee as well as hip dysplasia and patellar stabilisation in the young and sporting adult population.
Daniel achieved his MBBS (graduating with Honours) from Monash University in 1998. He then completed a Master of Surgery Degree in 2003 at St Vincent’s Hospital with Prof Peter Choong.
In 2006 Daniel commenced Advanced Orthopaedic Training and completed his Fellowship in 2009. In 2010 he was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at The Northern Hospital and Maroondah Hospital. During his training and consultancy he gained expertise in treating a wide variety of orthopaedic conditions as well as establishing his subspecialty interest in degenerative conditions and sports injuries of the hip and knee.
Daniel has since undertaken two further years of sub-specialty training in the UK. In 2011 he undertook a prestigious fellowship with Prof Fares Haddad and Johan Witt, (one of the UK and Europe’s pre-eminent hip surgeons), at University College London Hospital. There he honed his skills in hip arthroscopy, complex total hip replacements, revision total hip replacement and learned the technique of minimally invasive peri-acetabular osteotomy (MIS PAO) for hip dysplasia.
In 2012 Daniel trained at the Avon Orthopaedic Centre in Bristol, where he refined his skills in hip arthroscopy, primary and revision total hip replacement, primary and revision total knee replacement surgery and knee ligament reconstructive surgery. This was done under the auspices of Prof Ashley Blom and Robert (Bob) Spencer (one of England’s leading hip arthroscopists) and international experts Andrew Porteous and Jonathan Eldridge (arguably one of Europe’s most highly respected knee surgeons with regard to patello-femoral stabilisation).
Daniel has a keen interest in medical education, having spent a year as Anatomy Tutor and Prosector at Monash University, and he still tutors undergraduate and Advanced Orthopaedic Surgical trainees, as well as GPs and physiotherapists. He is on the article review panel for the journal “Hip International” and is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and a Member of the Australian Orthopaedic Association.
