Western Orthopaedics

About us


Orthopaedics is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention or correction of injuries and disorders of the skeletal system, associated with muscles, joints, and ligaments. The musculoskeletal system provides support, stability and form, giving your body the ability to move. Most musculoskeletal injuries can be attributed to strenuous, sports-related activities.


In 1989, Dr Pavitar Sunner completed his Medical Degree at the University of Sydney. Since then, he has completed additional training and a fellowship in Winnipeg, Canada. Dr Pavitar Sunner returned to Penrith in 2002 to begin his private practice, Western Orthopaedics. He continues to research new procedures and improve his methods to ensure that you walk away from any orthopaedic surgery completely healed and satisfied.
