He graduated from The University of Melbourne in 2009 with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. During his university years, Dr Balendra’s passion for Orthopaedic surgery led him to undertake an overseas exchange at the prestigious Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Oxford.

On completion of his surgical training, Dr Balendra travelled to the United Kingdom to undertake further sub-specialist training.
