He uses computer assisted and minimally invasive surgical techniques to optimise patient outcomes. Dr Olschewski completed medical school at the University of Toronto, followed by orthopaedic training at the University of Calgary, becoming an orthopaedic surgeon in 2002. During that time he won several awards, including the Award of Merit for Residents in Surgery. Subsequent to this, Dr Olschewski completed fellowships at the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto and the Whitlam Joint Centre in Sydney, where he refined his skills in hip, knee and shoulder reconstruction. Dr Olschewski practised orthopaedic surgery in suburban Boston, USA, before returning to Sydney to be close to family.

He continues to be involved in orthopaedic research and has published articles in arthroplasty, trauma and surgical journals. He has presented at local and international orthopaedic meetings. He was an invited guest on the television show "DYK?" ("Did You Know?"), in Massachusetts, where he discussed current orthopaedic topics.
