    Orthopaedic Surgeons At Portland District Health Hospital

    Consulting orthopaedic surgeons at Portland District Health Hospital specialise in these orthopaedic treatments:

    Ankle

    The foot and ankle in the human body work together to provide balance, stability, movement, and propulsion.

    Elbow

    The elbow in the human body is made up of three bones that join together to form a hinge joint. The upper arm bone or humerus connects from the shoulder to the elbow forming the top of the hinge joint.

    Hand

    The hand is composed of the 14 phalanges (fingers), the 5 metacarpal bones (middle of the hand), and the 8 carpal bones (wrist bones).

    Hip

    The hip is a complex and essential joint which supports the body’s full weight. It is formed where the head of the femur (thigh bone) meets the socket of the pelvis (acetabulum).

    Knee

    The knee joint is not only the largest joint in the body, but also the most complex. Absorbing three to six times your body weight with each step, it is one of the most stressed and commonly damaged joints.

    Osteoarthritis

    Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects joints including bone, cartilage, ligaments and muscles. Osteoarthritis can include inflammation of the tissue around the hip joint, damage to joint surface cartilage, bony spurs growing around the edge of the hip joint and/or deterioration of the ligaments and tendons that hold the joint together.

    Shoulder

    The shoulder is a complex joint allowing us a great range of movement and flexibility. It is also susceptible to injury due to the delicate construction and balance of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles making up the joint.

    Wrist

    The lower arm or forearm consists of two bones, the radius and the ulna. These bones connect the wrist to the elbow forming the bottom portion of the hinge joint.
