“The science of liberating success from coincidence”
Associate Professor Raniga perceives surgery as a pursuit of perfection.
He meticulously plans even the simplest surgical procedure in order to consistently liberate success from coincidence.
This allows him to predict potential complications, and develop appropriate surgical strategies in anticipation. He consistently takes time to reflect on his own and the team’s performance to constantly evolve and achieve excellence by repetition.
Associate Professor Raniga’s world-class training allows him to offer his patients contemporary knowledge and technical expertise of the highest standard, with a patient centred approach. He specialises in both open and arthroscopic (keyhole) shoulder and elbow reconstruction and joint replacement surgery.
Surgery is only required if all other non-surgical treatments haven’t produced the desired result. When required, he has the technical expertise to liberate you from pain and improve your function.
