He obtained his specialist qualifications through the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and Australian Orthopaedic Association (AOA), graduating as one of the youngest in his year. Further sub-specialised fellowship training was undertaken for 2 years, locally in Sydney and internationally in the UK and France, which allowed Dr Yu to obtain a global perspective and expanded skill-set.

For privately insured patients, Dr Yu is able to manage your needs efficiently at either the Mater Private Hospital (North Sydney) or Northern Beaches Hospital (Frenchs Forest).
