About Mr Michael Hanlon
Michael Hanlon is a New Zealand trained orthopaedic surgeon, qualifying in 1994. He spent two years overseas in subspecialty fellowship training in the areas of knee surgery and musculoskeletal oncology. This training was carried out in both the United States and Australia.
He has had a public hospital appointment at Auckland City Hospital and the Auckland Starship Children's Hospital since 1997 and has been in private practice since 1998.
He has confined his area of orthopaedic practice to the areas of subspecialty training and thus would consider himself a subspecialist knee surgeon and one of four surgeons in the country who perform musculoskeletal oncology reconstructive surgery.
He has an established practice and experience in all aspects of knee surgery. His interest in musculoskeletal oncology has provided a vast experience in complex reconstruction surgery around the knee and limb salvage techniques.
