James Canty is an orthopaedic surgeon with national and international experience.

He has a broad range of orthopaedic practice, including the management of hip and knee arthritis, soft tissue and reconstructive surgery of the knee as well as general orthopaedic trauma.

James graduated from the University of Melbourne with a medical degree in 2001. After a number of years of surgical experience, he completed specialist training in orthopaedics through the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in Victoria. James subsequently undertook two internationally regarded orthopaedic fellowships.
