MR ANG’S SUBSPECIALIST TRAINING

Mr Ang has completed three highly sought-after subspecialty fellowships at various prestigious and renowned upper limb centres in the world.

His second fellowship in the United Kingdom involved training in hand and elbow surgery at a tertiary trauma and referral centre in the South of England with Professor David Warwick (President of British Hand Surgery Society) and his team. In Brisbane, his third fellowship under Professor Mark Ross (President of Queensland Hand Surgery Society & President of Shoulder Society) and his team was completed at a tertiary referral and high volume trauma centre for complex hand and upper limb conditions and microsurgery.

Providing the best medical care possible

Ensuring you get
the right diagnosis

What you need to
know about choosing
a hand surgeon

A fully qualified hand surgeon is a post-fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon who has completed the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) intensive training, plus spent additional years undertaking extensive sub-specialised hand surgery training in an accredited fellowship program.

These programs require a minimum 18 months of training, with completion of a set of core hand surgery curriculum within a network of approved hand surgery training centres. A hand surgeon choosing this path is committed to extra education and providing the best medical care possible.
