Orthopaedic surgery treats conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system: bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons.
Orthopaedic management may be necessary at any age, from paediatric conditions such as club foot through to conditions associated with advancing age, such as knee and hip arthritis.
Our highly skilled caregivers use the latest techniques and equipment to improve your movement and ability to participate in activities you enjoy.
We provide care from evaluation, management, through to surgery and rehabilitation to help you return to your daily activities as quickly as possible.
