After completing basic medical training at the University of Adelaide in 1994, he obtained Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (Orthopaedic Surgery) in 2005. Following this, he undertook a Sports Fellowship at The Fowler Kennedy Sport Medicine Clinic (Ontario, Canada), which treats knee, shoulder and ankle injuries and has long-term experience with high-tibial osteotomy. To keep abreast of international best practice, Dr Hermann has visited orthopaedic centres throughout the US, UK and France.
