Liam Halliday
Dr Liam Halliday’s interests include hip and knee arthroplasty including anterior hip replacement and robotic surgery.

He has also had international training in hip preservation surgery including periacetabular osteotomy and paediatric orthopaedics.

Liam grew up in country Victoria and graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2009.  After receiving his fellowship from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons he worked in Melbourne for two years completing a trauma and arthroplasty fellowship at Western Health, followed by a further fellowship in anterior hip replacement and hip preservation surgery with Mr Jit Balakumar.

This was complemented with a fellowship in paediatric orthopaedic surgery at Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland, New Zealand.

Liam has a focus on evidence-based care, and a unique background in adult and paediatric orthopaedics that enables him to guide patients through arthroplasty and joint preserving options including arthroscopy of the hip and knee.

The Geelong Orthopaedics Group conducts regular auditing and feedback for quality assurance. Whilst research and teaching enhance the continuing professional development of surgeons, we also have weekly meetings to review all cases performed and those upcoming at the University Hospital Geelong. We participate in monthly literature review meetings to keep up with the latest scientific studies. A monthly audit takes place to review all difficult cases. In our private practice at Geelong Orthopaedics we also track our patients results and improvements using questionnaires and measurements using a results registry. We track all our arthroplasty (joint replacement) patients via the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Registry and the Geelong St John of God joint registry. This is designed to maintain the highest quality treatments and ensure there is constant feedback and improvement.

Liam is actively involved in teaching, including that of medical students and surgical trainees.
