Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dr Michel Genon

Specialising in Knee, Hip and Trauma.

Dr Michel Genon is an experienced orthopaedic surgeon specialising in minimally-invasive joint replacement and reconstruction surgery, as well as the latest MAKO SmartRobotics joint replacement surgery.

He studied Applied Science at RMIT Melbourne before moving to Brisbane where he studied Medicine and Surgery.

Dr Genon has undertaken specific up-skilling in advanced robotic surgery, which offers orthopaedic surgeons access to the latest, precision-guided hip and knee replacement surgical technology. This technology helps to increase the accuracy and alignment of the joint implant being used during hip or knee replacement surgery, which improves the implant’s longevity and also helps to produce a more consistent ligament and soft tissue balance.

Dr Genon was born in Belgium and emigrated to Australia at eight years old. He was raised in Inverloch, a fishing and holiday town in South Gippsland, Victoria. When not at work, Dr Genon is a family man who enjoys spending quality time with his wife and two daughters.

He operates in both public and private hospitals along the North Coast of NSW and treats a high volume of patients. He maintains very up-to-date surgical skills.

Dr Genon is committed to improving outcomes in lower limb joint replacement through research.

The aim of the registry is to collect pre-operative data and monitor patient outcomes through their management in a regional Australian setting.
