Mr Nigel Hartnett

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.
