Dr. Tim O'Carrigan
Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dr O'Carrigan is Sydney born and trained and graduated with Honours from the University of New South Wales in 1988.

Internship and residency was followed by Accredited Orthopaedic Training which was completed in 1997.

I then completed a 12 month Fellowship in Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction in Baltimore Maryland with Drs Dror Paley and John Herzenberg. Both of these surgeons are foremost in their field and head the busiest limb reconstruction unit in the United States. Extensive study and surgical experience was undertaken in the methods of Ilizarov to treat complex deformity in both adults and children.

My particular interest is in the correction of deformity in adults as a result of severe trauma or residual congenital or developmental skeletal abnormalities.I also specialize in Foot and Ankle surgery.

Upon return to Australia I have established a private practice in Liverpool Sydney.
