Dr Matthew Knight
General Practitioner Registrar
Dr Matt is a GP that works at Benowa Village.
Growing up on the Gold Coast, he’s more than happy to be back working in his hometown after spending years working around the state, principally as an orthopaedic surgical registrar. Initially undertaking residency through the Princess Alexandra Hospital, he has since worked at the Gold Coast University, QEII, Cairns and Townsville hospitals, as well as medical electives at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh. Choosing to study through Griffith University, he was lucky enough to also complete time in cardiovascular research, specifically in ischemic preconditioning of the heart. He has since been involved in a number of research publications, including working with the Australian Joint Registry.
Matt has really enjoyed the transition to General Practice, and whilst more than happy to see a whole range of complaints, does have a special interest in musculoskeletal issues, including but not limited to, arthritis, fractures/broken bones, dislocations, ingrown toenails, wound infections etc. Other areas of interest include steroid injections, implanon insertion/removal, minor surgical procedures and sports medicine.
