Craig Donohue - Orthopaedic Surgeon

My name is Craig Donohue. I am a Melbourne trained Orthopaedic surgeon. I specialise in hip and knee reconstructive surgery. I studied Medicine at the University of Melbourne. I was granted my FRACS from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2006. I am a Fellow of the Australian Orthopaedic Association (F.A.Orth.A).

In 2006 my family and I moved to Cambridge in England, where I spent 12 months as the Hip and Knee Fellow at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge. This exposed me to a wide range of hip and knee surgery, often quite complex. I gained more experience in the treatment of knee injuries involving knee arthroscopy and knee reconstruction. I returned to my home in Melbourne in 2007. I joined Knox Orthopaedic Group. My private practice has expanded since then.

I treat a wide variety of hip, knee and shoulder conditions. I treat sporting injuries and many fractures, specialising in the LARS artificial ligament for knee reconstruction. I perform hip and knee replacement surgery. I use custom patient specific instruments (PSI) for knee replacement surgery. I use local anaesthesia infiltration techniques (LIA) so that pain is minimised. I am on the on call roster for Knox Private Hospital Accident and Emergency where I treat many traumatic injuries, including a wide variety of fractures.

I operate 3 to 4 times per week at Knox Private Hospital.

I am also a member of the Orthopaedic Department at the Alfred Hospital. This allows me to perform hip and knee replacement surgery on public patients. I also treat Orthopaedic trauma at the Alfred Hospital. I am involved in the teaching of Orthopaedic Registrars, who will be the future Orthopaedic surgeons for the Victorian community.

I am more than happy to treat your patients or provide advice to you verbally if necessary. Appointments can usually be made within a 2 week period for your patients, but of course urgent patients will be seen as quickly as possible. Please contact my staff if you require an appointment for your patient.
