Hip Surgeon in Melbourne


Looking for a Hip Surgeon in Melbourne?

If you are suffering from hip or groin pain, experiencing stiffness in the hips that causes difficulty putting on your shoes and socks, or have swelling or tenderness of the hip area, you may need the expertise of a hip surgeon. Dr David Slattery is a leading hip orthopaedic surgeon in Melbourne who specialises in hip problems in adults, adolescents, and children. So, whatever your issue, you can rest assured that he will be able to help.

Dr David Slattery uses the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques, including robotic surgery, to treat a range of hip issues in his consulting rooms across the Melbourne area. In addition to minimally invasive hip replacements, he also specialises in periacetabular osteotomy (PAO), a surgical treatment for hip dysplasia that is caused by a deformity in the acetabulum together with hip arthroscopy which allows him to view the hip joint without making a large incision through the skin and other soft tissues. This means better outcomes for his patients, including much faster recovery times than those experienced with traditional hip surgeries.


One of the Leading Hip Orthopaedic surgeons in Melbourne

To become a renowned hip surgeon in Melbourne, Dr Slattery trained alongside some of the leading hip orthopaedic specialists from the Royal Australian College of Surgeons and has worked in such prestigious establishments as the Royal Melbourne Hospital. He’s also undertaken fellowship training with world-leading experts in Switzerland and the UK, including Professor Martin Beck. Dr Slattery holds fellowships with both the Royal Australian College of Surgeons and the Australian Orthopaedic Association.

His extensive training is backed up by years of clinical practice, and since qualifying as a hip surgeon, Dr Slattery has treated patients from all walks of life, including international cricketers, AFL players and other elite athletes. As you would expect from a leading orthopaedic hip specialist, he keeps fully up to date with all the latest advances in surgical techniques and incorporates 3D printing, robotic surgery, and 3D navigation into his treatment plans. When he’s not performing hip surgery, you’ll find Dr Slattery passing on his extensive knowledge by training junior doctors or catching up on his research and medical writing.
