Dr Sushil Pant is a leading Australian trained Orthopaedic Shoulder Surgeon. He is the founder and medical director of the Sydney Shoulder Unit; and is a Shoulder Surgeon at Sydney Sports Medicine Centre at Sydney Olympic Park.

Dr Pant is Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Australian Orthopaedic Association. He is a fellowship trained subspecialist Shoulder Surgeon, with extensive local and international experience treating all conditions about the shoulder.

Dr Pant treats amateur to elite level sportspersons with shoulder instability; those with shoulder impingement, bursitis, and rotator cuff disorders; and individuals with shoulder arthritis. He uses the latest arthroscopic (keyhole) techniques for shoulder reconstruction; and advanced computer navigation/patient specific instrumentation for shoulder replacements. Dr Pant performs several hundred shoulder operations each year; and is considered by his peers to be a high-volume shoulder surgeon.

Dr Pant was recruited as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon to St Vincent’s Public/Private Hospitals Melbourne (2016-2021); there he provided consultant on-call services for complex upper and lower limb orthopaedic trauma at a tertiary level. Along with his St Vincent’s Public Hospital colleagues, he supervised five advanced orthopaedic trainees every year – training and mentoring the next generation of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He was also heavily involved in the teaching and training of medical students through the University of Melbourne Medical School; and the training and assessment of nursing students at St Vincent’s Hospital/Australian Catholic University.


For much of his time at St Vincent’s Hospital he was the lead shoulder surgeon providing care for complex trauma and elective cases; becoming one of the highest volume shoulder replacement surgeons in the state.

The published Orthopaedic literature recognises that high volume surgeons generally have fewer revision procedures than low volume surgeons. Dr Pant is pleased to provide his Individual Surgeon Reports from the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Registry data to his patients.

Dr Pant was also the Principal Shoulder Surgeon at Melbourne Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Centre from 2016-2021.

To be closer to family he has relocated back home to Sydney and established a dedicated shoulder clinic providing experienced shoulder care.

The Sydney Shoulder Unit main consulting rooms are located centrally in Edgecliff with additional consulting locations throughout Sydney. Dr Pant is pleased to provide a comprehensive shoulder clinic to patients and referrers alike delivering consistent, high level outcomes for all shoulder conditions.


Sydney Shoulder Unit Team

The Sydney Shoulder Unit prides itself on the quality of our shoulder care which permeates through all of our staff to deliver you a consistent, high-standard of care for all of your shoulder concerns.

The shoulder is a complex joint and shoulder pathology can be difficult to accurately diagnose and treat. At Sydney Shoulder Unit we treat shoulder conditions exclusively and our outcomes and patient satisfaction are consistent and of a high-standard. As Sydney Shoulder Unit is sub-specialised, we look after patients from Greater Sydney and Regional New South Wales. We work closely with Physiotherapists, Sports Physicians, General Practitioners, and Team Physicians to support you back to an active, pain free lifestyle.  

Sydney Shoulder Unit is supported by a team of staff at our Edgecliff main office and at our other convenient locations.

Michelle and Audrey are our experienced and friendly SSU Administration Staff (based at Edgecliff) and the first contact you will have with our clinic. They will facilitate your appointments, help with your initial patient queries and provide ongoing support through your SSU Journey.

At SSU we work with experienced Anaesthetists who are fellows of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists. Our Anaesthetists regularly work at Private and Public Hospitals and are experienced with anaesthesia for shoulder surgery.

Surgery requires a team of doctors, nurses and other support staff to all work closely together. Dr Pant has hand picked your Assistant Surgeon to provide assistance at surgery to undertake the procedure safely and efficiently. 

Your outcome after shoulder surgery involves working closely with Physiotherapists. We have strong links with physiotherapists around our clinic locations. Dr Pant is always happy to communicate with your physiotherapist before and after surgery.
At Sydney Sports Medicine Centre we treat high level athletes and work closely with some of Sydney’s best Sports Medicine Doctors and Physiotherapists.
