Choose a St John of God Health Care hospital for your orthopaedic care and you’re choosing expert, compassionate care, your specialist and the timing of your procedure. Whether it’s knees, hips, hands, arms, legs or back, you’re choosing total care from pre-surgery through to rehabilitation. All things that can help manage the natural anxiety that comes with any procedure.
Any surgical procedure carries risks. Make sure you discuss all possible risks with an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Joint replacements for hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, foot and ankle
Joint replacement is a procedure that allows a hip, knee, shoulder, hand and wrist, or foot and ankle joint to be surgically replaced with an artificial orthopaedic prosthesis. Joint replacement procedures are offered to provide relief from arthritic pain or to fix physical joint damage.
Foot and ankle disorders
Orthopaedic foot and ankle disorders can result from damage to bone, muscle, or soft tissue. Causes can vary, with ankle sprains and fractures often coming from twists, or awkward landings. Arthritis can also affect the foot and ankle joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis.
Sports-related injury management
Sports injuries are commonly represented by sprains, strains, joint cartilage or ligament injuries, fractures, dislocations, and rotator cuff injuries. Serious sports-related injuries often cause immediate pain and swelling, and may require orthopaedic assessment.
Orthopaedic surgical intervention may be required for some spinal injuries such as a spinal cord compressed by a herniated disc, a collection of blood, a vertebral fracture or tumour. Spinal surgery can involve decompression or spinal stabilisation.
Paediatric orthopaedics is focused on musculoskeletal (bone, joint, or muscle) problems in children ranging from newborn babies through to teenagers. These conditions may include trauma, sports injuries, developmental conditions, gait problems and peripheral nerve injuries.
