Dr Michael Walsh

Orthopaedic Surgery

Dr Walsh has been in orthopaedic practice in Western Sydney for 35 years. Dr Michael Walsh completed his undergraduate medical training at the University of New South Wales in 1976. After several years of accredited General Surgical Training which included six months training under Dr Victor Chang at the cardiac surgery unit at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney, he progressed to another 2 years accredited neurosurgery, chest surgery and abdominal surgery at Sydney Hospital. With this extensive and broad-based background in general surgical training, he commenced orthopaedic training which was undertaken under the Australian Orthopaedic Association’s Sydney based programme and was completed in 1985.

After spending most of 1986 in Fellowships in Graz, Austria and Milano, Italy specialising in surgery to the hip and the knee, Dr Walsh commenced orthopaedic practice in Western Sydney where he currently practices. He has held appointments at Mt Druitt Hospital, Nepean Hospital, Hawkesbury Hospital and 3 Combat Support Hospital at the Richmond RAAF Base. To continue his educational development, Dr Walsh has done fellowships in Murau, Austria (neonatal hip ultrasound), Lisbon, Portugal (hip revision surgery), Maastrict, Holland (primary hip surgery), St. Louis Missouri (knee surgery), Mayo Clinic, Minnesota USA (knee and elbow surgery), Exeter, UK (hip surgery).

Dr Walsh is a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of Surgeons and a Fellow of the Australian Orthopaedic Association


Dr Walsh’s years of general surgical training, before commencing formal orthopaedic training, have stimulated him to develop an interest and expertise in soft tissue skeletal surgery. His particular interests are in the surgical management of common intractable conditions of the hip (“trochanteric bursitis”), the elbow (lateral epicondylitis or “tennis elbow”) and the foot (plantar fasciitis or “heel spurs”). Dr Walsh’s experience with tendon reconstruction for trochanteric bursitis over the past 25 years has brought him to the attention of international audiences and he is frequently asked to speak about the management of this condition and demonstrate the surgical procedure in meetings in Australia and overseas including the UK, Italy, Denmark, Belgium, Canada, USA, South Africa and Angola. In May 2007, he was invited to demonstrate the surgical technique for gluteal tendon repair at the International Hip Meeting in Exeter UK one of the leading hip surgery centres in the English speaking world.
