About Us

The 25 specialists of Orthopaedics SA represent the largest private orthopaedic group in South Australia, providing expert medical care for patients of all ages.



We treat bone and joint problems relating to arthritis, degenerative conditions, sports injuries, trauma, fractures and genetics.

Should a patient require surgery, we tailor our evidence based approach to each individual. Our surgeons are leaders in joint replacement and arthritis surgery, as well as innovators in minimally-invasive and arthroscopic surgery.

All of Orthopaedics SA’s doctors participate in ongoing professional education, with several holding key academic, teaching and industry positions. Maintaining links with universities, researchers, professional bodies and teaching hospitals supports the continued delivery of best practice and enables us to guide and support South Australia’s future orthopaedic graduates.

Our Orthopaedic specialties include:

Orthopaedics SA Specialists

All specialists at Orthopaedics SA have completed 6 years of medical training. They have also undergone 8 years of further studies to qualify as an Orthopaedic Surgeon, or to obtain Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeon (Orthopaedic Surgery), among many other specialties.

Additionally, some of our doctors have chosen to specialise further, concentrating on a particular field such as Sports Medicine or Paediatrics, or on an area of the body such as the feet, hips, knees or shoulders.

In addition to private practise commitments, all Orthopaedics SA doctors participate in an on-going professional education to maintain their strong links with the Universities and to teach in Hospitals in South Australia. Many of our doctors hold key academic placements at these institutions, providing professional assistance and guidance to the State’s future orthopaedic graduates.

Several specialists hold notable roles within the Local, National and International Orthopaedic professional bodies.

Orthopaedic Nursing Team

Orthopaedics SA is proud to have a specialist Orthopaedic Nursing Team on-site, to provide comprehensive nursing care to our patients, including patient education and pre-operative assessment services. Our team will assist you with the following services:

Pre-admission
The Orthopaedic Nursing Team plays a pivotal role in addressing patients’ individual needs, before and after hospitalisation.

Patient’s receive a pre-admission call prior to surgery to discuss the details of your hospital stay, the recovery process and to answer any questions you or your family may have.

The aim of the phone call is to provide information that will better prepare you for surgery and to discuss steps for your recovery.

Discharge
Our nursing team will discuss your discharge planning during your pre-admission phone call.

Wound care
The Orthopaedic Nurse will provide a wound care service for post-operative patients, including wound assessment, bandaging and dressing removal.

Fracture care
The nursing team will provide cast care and education for both adults and children. There are some important instructions to observe, particularly with children, once a cast is applied to a limb. Our staff will discuss the relevant care needed for your particular cast.
