Knee and Orthopaedic Surgeon
Hello, my name is Nigel Hartnett. I am a Knee and Orthopaedic Surgeon originally from New Zealand who has settled in this wonderful city of Melbourne.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Auckland University in 1996, and then graduated with my degree in medicine from the University of Otago in 2000.
I obtained my Fellowship in Orthopaedic Surgery from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2010.
I became a Fellow of the Australian Orthopaedic Association in 2014.
I am an active member of the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery, and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine 2009.
I am an international member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons 2010.
I came to Melbourne to further my sub-specialty training in Knee Surgery under the mentorship of John Bartlett. Mr. Bartlett has recently retired from active clinical practice and I am more than happy to review any patient of his.
I have also undertaken knee fellowships under the mentorship of Professor Julian Feller, Hayden Morris, and Tim Whitehead.
I specialise in all areas of Knee Surgery with particular interests in knee reconstruction, knee replacement and complex revision knee replacement.
I see patients of all ages with any knee problem.
My research interests include newer technologies in knee joint replacement.
I have a strong and focused commitment towards teaching and am more than happy to participate in education sessions or provide advice on any knee or Orthopaedic condition.
