Our Practice

Nigel Hartnett is a Specialist Knee Surgeon seeing patients with knee conditions from childhood through to adults of all ages. Nigel's special interests are complex primary and revision knee joint replacement, along with soft-tissue ligament reconstruction.

He also performs arthroscopy, osteotomy, and joint preservation procedures. He brings a refreshingly honest, open, and realistic approach when seeing patients. This has been borne out by not only being a knee surgeon but also having suffered numerous knee injuries during his sporting career.

He believes that all patients should not only be well informed of their knee condition but also that they understand all non-surgical and surgical treatment options that are available to them.

The primary goals for Nigel in treating patients is to improve their level of pain, improve their quality of life and level of function, and allow them to return to activities that they get enjoyment from.

Nigel is a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, a fellow of the Australian Orthopaedic Association, a member of the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery, and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, and an international member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

Nigel’s main consulting rooms are at La Trobe Medical Centre, Bundoora. Nigel also consults at Blackburn Specialist Suites and Bounce Physiotherapy, Blackburn; SportsMedBiologic, Box Hill; Macedon Health, Gisborne; and Alexandra District Hospital, Alexandra.

Nigel operates at North Park Private Hospital, Bundoora; Warringal Private Hospital, Heidelberg; St. Vincent’s Private Kew (formerly known as Vimy Private); and Alexandra District Hospital, Alexandra.
