About Albert Yoon
Born and raised on the North Shore, I attended Rosmini College in Takapuna and then entered Auckland Medical School. I performed my Orthopaedic Surgery training throughout Auckland and the North Island, and was awarded the NZ Orthopaedic Association Presidents Prize for best Orthopaedic trainee in NZ in my graduating year. I further subspecialised in Hand surgery at the Hand and Upper Limb Centre in Canada where amongst other things I was pleased to learn percutaneous needle surgery as an alternative to traditional dupuytrens surgery. I also completed the Royal North Shore Hospital hand surgery fellowship in Sydney Australia.
I work in public at North Shore hospital doing hand and wrist surgery. Here I am also heavily involved with education and training of junior staff, and I am active in research and audit. My Private Practice is at the Shakespeare Orthopaedic Institute in the new building at 209 Shakespeare road. I also consult at 131 Lincoln road in Waitakere. I enjoy a close working relationship with local hand therapists and GPs.
