Warringal Private Hospital specialist Simon Talbot

Mr Simon Talbot


Simon performs all knee related surgery including replacements and sporting injuries and has a kind and caring approach.

Mr Simon Talbot is an Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising solely in knee

surgery. He completed his medical degree in 1994 and his orthopaedic

training in 2004 to become a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College

of Surgeons. Simon then undertook further training in knee surgery with

fellowships in Melbourne (with John Bartlett and Hayden Morris) and

Belgium. John Bartlett has retired and handed over the ongoing care of his

patients to Simon.

Simon performs surgery on a wide range of knee conditions including

arthroscopic surgery, cruciate ligament reconstruction and knee joint

replacement surgery. He performs over 500 knee operations each year

including more than 200 knee replacements.

He places particular emphasis on the importance of open and honest

communication between himself and his patients. Clinic appointments are

spaced to allow time to talk about all available options while minimising the

chance of keeping patients waiting. He runs two acute knee injury clinics

each week to see urgent sporting injuries.

Simon sees patients at his consulting rooms in Heidelberg and holds

frequent operating sessions at Warringal Private Hospital. He has been a

consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Western Health since 2006 where he

specialises in complex knee joint revision surgery and the reconstruction

of traumatic knee injuries.


Simon is a member of several professional organisations including the

Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, the Australian Orthopaedic

Association, the Australian Knee Society, the Asia Pacific Orthopaedic

Association and is an honorary lecturer at the Australian Institute for

Musculaskeletal Science, University of Melbourne.

“Improved outcomes for my patients is my primary concern.”

Mr Talbot holds Sports Knee Clinics twice a

week to see urgent knee injuries including

ACL ruptures and cartilage damage.
