My aim is always to provide the best
and the least invasive orthopaedic care possible."

By Dr. Aziz Bhimani
As an Orthopaedic Surgeon I specialise in all aspects of hip and knee surgeries. Over the course of more than five thousands surgeries I have established a particular passion and expertise in joint replacements for the treatment of arthritis along with arthroscopic and reconstructive surgeries.
My practice is based in Wollongong and I am fortunate to work closely with my regular team of highly experienced professionals who assist me both during and outside of surgery. I have serviced the Illawarra for over 10 years, work at local hospitals and help the public health system through the training of registrars.
While I grew up in Canberra, I did my medical training in Sydney as well as additional specialist training in the US and Europe.
On a personal note I’m very lucky to be happily married with three beautiful children. Like most people I love to spend my spare time outside of work relaxing with family and friends. I also love to go mountain bike riding, skiing, and I love being a surgeon.
I am a proud member of the Australian Orthopaedic Association, the Royal Australian College of Surgeons and the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee surgery and Sports Medicine.

What is your surgical philosophy?
While I really love performing surgery, my philosophy is that surgery must always be treated as a method of last resort once all non-surgical solutions have been exhausted.
It’s crucial that my patients understand that the decision to have surgery is always theirs to make. Patients should make the decision to have surgery based on their quality of life, their pain and their loss of normal function.
My priority is to make sure my patients fully understand their condition, the treatment options available to them, as well as any risks or potential complications of a particular treatment.
What are your objectives?
My objectives for my patients are to reduce their pain and increase their mobility. However, we must always treat surgery as a last resort.
Once we understand your diagnosis, we can plan and agree on a sensible and holistic approach to treatment and rehabilitation for your best long-term results.
If you decide that surgery is necessary, then not only is our objective to reduce your pain and increase your mobility, but to also facilitate the earliest possible return to normal activity post-surgery.
To accomplish these objectives for my patients I’m extremely dedicated to ensuring I am at the forefront of developments in hip and knee surgery so that I can provide patients with the best possible orthopaedic care.
Why did you become a surgeon?
I became a surgeon is to help people overcome debilitating and chronic pain and immobility so they can to live happier and more active lives.
I’m also passionate about teaching others, both patients and other medical professionals, which has always been an intrinsic and rewarding part of being a surgeon.
