Dr Vinay Kulkarni is an Australian educated and trained Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in the treatment of adult and paediatric spinal disorders. He also treats both adult and paediatric orthopaedic trauma.

Dr Kulkarni has completed sub-speciality fellowships in adult and paediatric spinal surgery, in both Australia and Canada.
