Since August 2008, Dr. Matthew Halsey has headed the pediatric orthopaedic program at Doernbecher. His main interests in pediatric orthopaedic topics include scoliosis and trauma. He and his group are currently working on identifying the best treatment regiment for elbow fractures after closed reduction and percutaneous pinning. They are also looking to identify ways of minimizing post-op radiation and visits, as well as methods for decreasing post-operative pain following scoliosis surgery. The main goal is not only to decrease pain but to decrease total opioid use, its complications and to decrease the overall length of stay for patients.

Dr. Halsey also has a special interest in hip dysplasia and other hip issues (SCFE, Perthes, etc) as well as clubfeet. Trauma and Sports Injuries are an important part of his practice as well.

    He didn't preform x-rays like I thought he would for a broken bone, he just went off of week old films. But other than that he was good

    Everyone was friendly, calm and helpful. Answered all of our questions and gave us all the information we needed.

  • Aug 05, 2019

    The doctors, as long as you are there, ask you why you are there and that is something that bothers me because they are supposed to be the ones who know why the patient is and we are going to go to tell their information when they say (unreadable).

  • Aug 03, 2019

He's a wonderful surgeon and we enjoy talking to him and he is very caring and I truly believe and trust in him when I go on surgery and we are very thankful to have him as a surgeon for (INAUDIBLE).
