He completed a knee fellowship of one year with Dr David Dickison at the Mater Hospital in North Sydney, particularly focussing on arthroscopic surgery and computer navigated knee replacement.

Michael was then the ‘Prince of Wales Hospital Shoulder and Elbow Fellow’ with Dr Jerome Goldberg and Dr Wade Harper for a year, again focussing on arthroscopic reconstructive surgery and joint replacement.
