St John of God Health Care orthopaedic surgery
Orthopaedic surgery treats conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system: bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons.

You may need care to get you moving after sporting injuries such as broken bones or ligament repair, or to reduce pain in your joints caused by wear and tear over time such as hip and knee replacements.

Orthopaedic care includes services for:

  • knee and hip disorders and ligament reconstructions
  • shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand problems
  • joint replacements and reconstructions for hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, foot and ankle
  • foot and ankle disorders
  • sports-related injury management
  • spinal injuries
  • paediatric orthopaedics.

Our highly skilled surgeons and caregivers use the latest techniques and equipment to improve your movement and ability to participate in activities you enjoy.

We provide care from evaluation and management, through to surgery and rehabilitation to help you return to your daily activities as quickly as possible.
