Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
We are a tertiary level referral centre which takes care of disorders of the bones, joints and the musculoskeletal system in both children and adults. With more people getting involved in sporting activities and a rapidly ageing population, the level of injuries and degenerative disorders of bones and joints is set to rise to new highs. We believe that "Movement is Life" and our department is well-equipped with the specialists to help keep you active and healthy.
We are sub-divided into seven Clinical Divisions:
Our surgeons usually sub-specialise in the treatment of surgical conditions in one or two of the sub-specialties. This ensures that they are proficient in their particular field of interest. Our surgeons are supported by a dedicated team of housemen, anaesthetists, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, social workers, case managers, administrators and other allied health staff who work as a team to ensure quality care for our patients.
