Mr Michael Hanlon - Knee & Musculoskeletal Tumour Surgeon

Private Service, Orthopaedics


I am a New Zealand trained orthopaedic surgeon, qualifying in 1994. I then spent two years overseas in a subspecialty fellowship training in the areas of knee surgery and musculoskeletal oncology. This training was carried out in both the United States and Australia.
I have had a public hospital appointment at Auckland City Hospital and the Auckland Starship Children's Hospital since 1997 and have been in private practice since 1998.
I have confined my area of orthopaedic practice to the areas of subspecialty training and thus would consider myself a subspecialist knee surgeon and one of four surgeons in the country who perform musculoskeletal oncology reconstructive surgery.
I have an established practice and experience in all aspects of knee surgery. My interest in musculoskeletal oncology has provided a vast experience in complex reconstruction surgery around the knee and limb salvage techniques.
My surgical expertise covers the following categories of surgery:
  1. Sports related injury and associated surgery
    • Arthroscopic meniscal surgery
    • Arthroscopic cartilage surgery
    • Ligament reconstructive surgery
  2. Surgical management of degenerative disorders of the knee
    • Re-alignment osteotomy surgery
    • Partial knee replacement
    • Primary total knee replacement
    • Complex knee revision surgery encompassing major bone loss, and deformity surgery
  3. Surgical management of musculoskeletal tumours
    • Benign and malignant bone tumours
    • Benign and malignant soft tissue tumours
