Mr Osama Elsewaisy
Dr. Osama Elsewaisy is an Australian trained specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon with an interest in conditions affecting the hip and knee, and general orthopaedic trauma. He has undertaken two international subspecialty fellowships focusing on hip and knee surgery.
Osama completed his medical degree at Monash university in 2009. He completed his orthopaedic training through the Australian Orthopaedic Association and was awarded Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS).
Osama then worked as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at St. Vincent’s public hospital Melbourne, performing hip and knee replacements, arthroscopic knee surgery including ACL reconstructions and managing orthopaedic trauma.
In 2020 and 2021, Osama undertook two overseas sub-specialty fellowships over 18 months, focusing on hip and knee arthroplasty.
The first 6 months were spent in Edinburgh, UK. This consolidated his skills in primary hip and knee replacement surgery, and furthered his training in complex cases including revision (re-do) hip and knee surgery. This was followed by 12 months in Calgary, Canada, which included specific training in the direct anterior approach (DAA) for hip replacement, and partial/unicompartmental knee replacement. At both overseas centres, Osama was also involved in the operative and non-operative management of orthopaedic trauma.
Osama is a member of the Australian Orthopaedic Association, the Canadian Arthroplasty Society and the International Congress for Joint Reconstruction.
Osama’s training and experience in Australia, the UK and Canada give him a well-rounded international perspective in the management of disorders affecting the hip and knee.
