Orthopaedic Surgery - Hip, Knee, Trauma & Robotic Surgery

Dr Agolley is an Australian trained Orthopaedic Surgeon, with a special interest in sports hip and knee surgery, hip and knee preservation surgery, and hip and knee replacement surgery. He is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and member of the Australian and British Orthopaedic Associations.

Dr Agolley's journey in the medical field began with a diverse international background. Born to Ghanean and Chinese parents in London, UK, he later migrated to Melbourne in the 1980s. He earned his academic stripes by graduating with distinction, completing a Bachelor of Science degree with first class research honours from Monash University, followed by a medical degree from The University of Newcastle in 2002.

His pursuit of excellence continued through rigorous Australian Orthopaedic Specialist training based in Sydney. This training exposed Dr Agolley to advanced elective and trauma surgical techniques under the mentorship of leading orthopaedic surgeons in Sydney, Melbourne, and regional areas of New South Vales and Victoria.

Dr Agolley's commitment to staying at the forefront of orthopaedic knowledge led him to complete two prestigious fellowships in London, UK. These fellowships were hosted by internationally acclaimed institutions, including University College Hospital, Princess Grace Hospital, and the Institute of Sport and Exercise Health who care for members of the British Olympic team.

His fellowships focused on advanced surgical techniques, including the management of hip and knee sports injuries, young adult hip dysplasia, hip impingement, hip arthroscopy, periacetabular osteotomy, and complex hip replacement, including direct anterior approach replacement.  He also became well-versed in complex hip and knee revision joint replacement, partial knee replacement, hip and knee arthroscopy, Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), labral tears, ACL reconstruction, and knee osteotomy.
