Dr James Larkin

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to introduce myself.

I am a Western Australian trained orthopaedic surgeon having studied Medicine at the University of Western Australia prior to completing my advanced training in orthopaedic surgery.

I look forward to being able to walk you through your orthopaedic journey. I strongly believe in a personalised approach to patient care, with a tailored, individualised approach to dealing with whatever concerns you bring to me. I believe nobody knows your body better than you do and one of the most important tools we have as surgeons is listening to our patients and working together to find a solution.

I have completed a complex hip and knee arthroplasty fellowship in Canada with Dr Michael Dunbar, one of North America’s pre-eminent arthroplasty surgeons, and have taken a special interest in kinematic alignment and robotic joint replacement.

My current research revolves around robotic knee arthroplasty surgery.

I have public appointments at Fiona Stanley Hospital, Fremantle Hospital and Rockingham Hospital.

I consult privately at Bethesda Hospital and St John of God Murdoch with Coastal Orthopaedics.

Areas of interest:

  • Robotic hip and knee replacement
  • Primary and revision hip replacement
  • Primary, complex primary and revision knee replacement
  • Arthroscopic knee surgery
  • Foot and Ankle surgery
  • Orthopaedic Trauma

Outside of work, I am very lucky to have an amazing family. When not spending time on adventures with them, I like to run, mountain bike and play golf.
