The aim of the clinic is to assess patients and determine the most appropriate course of action to manage and improve their symptoms.
This service allows patients to be assessed and, where required, investigated and treated quickly.
The Musculoskeletal & Orthopaedic Service can assess, diagnose and treat many different musculoskeletal conditions, including:
The department of Musculoskeletal Trauma offers treatment for patients with multiple trauma injuries. The all-inclusive orthopaedic trauma program including hand, spine and musculoskeletal specialties provides comprehensive care in every multi-trauma patient following the most modern and up-to-date management protocols.
Hip, knee, shoulder and other joint replacement surgeries (both primary and revision) are the major focus in this unit. Commitment to a postoperative rehabilitation plan designed by the treating physician, and to physiotherapy is important to getting the most benefit from surgery and to returning to normal activities. Patients enjoy very good to excellent results from their total joint replacement surgeries.
