Along with years of hands on experience, Professor Jeganath (Jegan) Krishnan (MBBS, FRACS (Orth), Ph.D.) brings to each appointment a level of knowledge very few in his field can boast. Professor Krishnan has a particular surgical interest in shoulder and hand surgery and has presented at many international forums on topics related to these fields. He also has a keen interest in the design of a prototype metacarpophalangeal finger joint for the rheumatoid hand. He attained a PhD in this topic at Flinders University. This gives his patients comfort and security in the knowledge that Professor Krishnan is not only a great surgeon, but a thinker and a problem solver.
