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.

    Matthew Halsey is a great doctor. He ... we've seen him since our [Name] about a month in ... about a month old and now he's 5 and a half and you know, he ... we feel like, you know, he is non judging, you know, very, you know, caring and we felt like we totally go and trust his expert opinions and and what's right for our child. We couldn't ask for a better doctor. I definitely would recommend him to anyone that has*

  • Apr 11, 2019

    We just went for a yearly exam looked at x-rays

  • Apr 11, 2019

    Very good.

  • Apr 08, 2019

    I got the impression that the doctor was less willing to do treatment options due to the fact that my child experiences developmental disability that he would have been had she did had she not experienced disability.

  • Apr 07, 2019

    VERY caring!

  • Mar 30, 2019

    Everyone was very helpful and kind!

  • Mar 20, 2019

    Dr. Halsey and his PA Pollee were great! Punctual, friendly with my daughter, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I appreciated their expertise and “bedside manner.”

  • Mar 16, 2019

    Dr. Halsey is an amazing doctor, him and his staff are always so friendly, I love that they remember us every time we come it, makes us feel right at home!

  • Mar 16, 2019

    This is our second opportunity for our son to receive treatment from Dr. Halsey. He is outstanding and absolutely worth the 4+ hour drive to receive care. If our son has a future ortho-surg need, we would absolutely seek care from Dr. Halsey again and in fact have referred others in our area to him for treatment. He communicates both to the parents as well as the child (patient) in a warm, caring way and does not ever make us feel rushed. Other providers have dismissed my feedback that my son is very stoic with pain but Dr. Halsey was very receptive to hearing this information and attentive to ensuring our son had excellent pain control throughout his treatment.

  • Mar 03, 2019

    He's a good doctor and I would recommend to any of my friends and family. So yeah.

  • Mar 02, 2019

    He was better than the doctors I went to in the North Bend/Coos Bay area. He was straightforward with his answers careful not to leave anything out. He also made sure to listen to my questions as well as my mothers. I like that he took the time to show me what my diagnosis looked like on my x-rays.
