Dr Michael McAuliffe

I completed my orthopaedic training in Queensland in 2004. Following completion I worked at the Adidas Sports Medicine Centre in Auckland and have also spent time visiting numerous other orthopaedic centres around the world which I always find interesting and thought provoking. I was the Director of Orthopaedics at the Ipswich General Hospital for 4 years from 2006 – 2010.  Prior to this I worked as the Deputy Director of Orthopaedics at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.

In 2016 I was awarded the ABC Travelling fellowship, this allowed me to travel for 5 weeks with surgeons from the UK and South Africa around major orthopaedic centres in the USA and Canada. This experience has enhanced my overall outlook surrounding orthopaedics and what I can offer my patients.

I am a member of the Australian Orthopaedic Association, The Australian Knee Society, The American Hip and Knee Association and I am a senior lecturer at the University of Queensland.

My special area of interest is all knee surgery and hip replacement surgery. I also enjoy the extensive research I am involved with. I was awarded me PhD for work on knee osteoarthritis and total knee replacements in 2021.
