Mr Matt Walker

Specialist

Profile

I am a graduate of Auckland Medical School and did my specialist training in the Waikato and the Auckland region before leaving on fellowship. I worked in the United Kingdom at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital at Stanmore, London in hip and knee revision surgery and knee cartilage implantation surgery. A knee arthroplasty and complex soft tissue reconstructive fellowship was then completed in Melbourne, before I returned to New Zealand to help set up the new Orthopaedic department at North Shore Hospital.

I am committed to providing an excellent and long lasting service to GPs with a particular focus on the North Shore region, offering education and readily available advice.
