About Me

Dr Michelle Atkinson is a Sydney trained Orthopaedic surgeon who has subspecialised in spinal disorders and spinal surgery. She operates on all regions of the spine: cervical (the neck), thoracic (behind the chest), and lumbar (the lower back). She has extensive experience through her training in Australia, as well as USA and the UK. Michelle has completed subsequent visits to the UK, France, Germany, Singapore and North America to learn first hand from masters of particular techniques. Her current surgery includes computerised navigation to improve accuracy of instrumentation placement and correction of deformity.

Michelle is keen to aid in rapid return to form and function following injury and surgery to the spine.

Dr Atkinson operates at the Sydney Adventist Hospital (SAN)

Dr Atkinson consults at Barangaroo Orthopaedic & Sports Injury Clinic on Wednesday mornings.
