Orthopaedic Trauma service

Murdoch’s senior orthopaedic specialists are available at all times to support you on presentation in our Emergency Department for musculoskeletal trauma 24-hours a day, 7-days per week.

Ortho Trauma service

This comprehensive service means that a senior specialist oversees your complete journey to recovery under one roof.

  • Any fracture / break to the shoulder, arm, forearm, thigh, lower leg, back, ankle, foot and pelvis
  • Joint dislocations such as shoulder, hip, knee, multi-ligament knee injuries, and foot and ankle.

Adults, children and babies are all treated by our ED.

You will be seen by a senior orthopaedic specialist shortly after presentation to our Emergency Department and the same specialist will be able to manage any subsequent treatment, surgery and rehabilitation you require all within St John of God Murdoch Hospital.
