Dr John Mckie

I completed orthopaedic training in New Zealand and completed the Fellowship in 1992. Following time overseas doing Fellowships, immediately following the completion of my formal training in New Zealand, I returned to the Orthopaedic Department, at Christchurch Hospital in October 1994. In the years since then I have continued to have a major role in the public hospital department and more recently also in private practice.

My main subspeciality areas of interest include paediatric orthopaedic surgery, along with post traumatic and congenital deformity reconstruction, and leg lengthening. I have had extensive experience in the management of orthopaedic trauma and continue to have an interest in the management of non-unions and bone infection. I am a high volume hip and knee arthroplasty surgeon and also have a significant foot and ankle component to my practice.

I have been a consultant to the New Zealand Artificial Limb Service since my return in 1994 and from 2012 I have been involved with leading the Osseointegration programme for amputees. I have recently become a member of the NZ Artificial Limb Service Board.

In addition to my involvement in public and private practice in Christchurch, I also spend two days a month providing general orthopaedic services to Greymouth on the West Coast of New Zealand.
After eleven years as Clinical Director of Orthopaedic Services in Christchurch, I relinquished this role in November 2016.
