Dr Jeff Ling

BSc(Med), MBBS, FRACS (Orth)

Dr. Jeff Ling is an orthopaedic surgeon with expertise in all aspects of surgery of the foot and ankle in adults and children. He has a particular interest in Patient Specific Total Ankle Replacement, modern techniques for Ankle Instability, and the correction of Flatfoot Deformity. His scope of practice covers Sports Injuries and Arthroscopy, Fractures, Forefoot conditions, Bunions, Degenerative and Arthritic conditions, and Paediatric problems. Through his academic and university hospital appointments, he remains at the forefront of this field. He is dedicated to utilising the latest evidence-based treatment options for his patients. Lastly, as an active member of the orthopaedic trauma rosters, Dr. Ling treats fractures from all over the body in children and adults.

After graduating from medicine at the University of New South Wales, Dr Ling completed his internship, residency, and general surgical training at Royal North Shore Hospital. He subsequently did his specialty training in Orthopaedic Surgery and obtained his Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons - FRACS. He then undertook two years of further subspecialty training in foot and ankle surgery in the form of three fellowships, starting with the foot and ankle fellowship at Royal North Shore Hospital. He then continued his training in the USA.

He was a clinical fellow at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, which is ranked the top hospital for orthopaedics in the USA. Here, his training focused on adult deformity correction, ankle replacement surgery and sports injuries of the foot and ankle. During this time, he was actively involved in the care of professional athletes from the NBA, NFL, and New York Ballet. This was followed by a paediatric fellowship at the Shriners Hospital for Children in Portland, Oregon, where his training focused on deformity correction in the paediatric foot and ankle.

Dr. Ling then returned home to Australia to practice, where he began his Private Practice at Sydney Orthopaedic Specialists at Prince of Wales Private, as well as taking up appointments at Prince of Wales Hospital, and Sydney Children’s Hospital. It was around this time that he founded the Foot and Ankle Institute with Dr. Lunz, which focuses on the advancement of the field of foot and ankle surgery through teaching and research.

Dr. Ling is consistently involved in the education and training of medical students, junior doctors, and local and international surgeons. He holds the offices of Director of Orthopaedic Training at Sydney Children’s Hospital and Secretary of the Australian Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society (AOFAS). He has published significant articles in Foot & Ankle International, the top foot and ankle journal, and is a frequent contributor at national and international meetings. He particularly enjoys his annual trip to Tonga where he provides expertise on the management of clubfeet.
