Melbourne Orthopaedic Surgeons

Melbourne orthopaedic surgeons are medical doctors who specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of injuries and disease affecting bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage and nerves. Some orthopaedists are general orthopaedic surgeons who treat all areas of the body, while others specialise in specific regions such as the foot and ankle, hand and wrist, shoulder and elbow, hip or knee.

Melbourne fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeons Dr Austin Vo, Julia Kirby and Matthew Evans are highly regarded by their patients for their skill, dedication to advancing the field and compassionate patient care. With an emphasis on restoring function, these orthopaedic specialists help patients reclaim their lives and rediscover the joy of living.
